Virginia / Bees Creek Volunteer Fire Brigade

The Bees Creek Volunteer Fire Brigade was not referenced in Annual Reports until the 1982 Department of Transport and Works Annual Report, where it was noted that Batchelor, McMinns Lagoon and Bees Creek Volunteer Fire Brigades were either formed or re-formed during the 1981-1982 financial year[1]. This is the ninth Volunteer Fire Brigade. In mid-1982 a trailer pump was made available to the brigade, but it was not until the mid-1980s that a grassfire unit was issued[2].
