Wattle Camp Rural Fire Brigade hosted a Community Day at its fire shed on Sunday to thank the Heritage Nanango Community Fund for its support over the past 12 months.

First Officer Peter Booth said Heritage had donated about $25,000 to the brigade.

This had been used to bitumen the driveway into the fire shed, paint the building and upgrade a pump.

The Wattle Camp RFB has two trucks and about eight active members.

The Community Day featured a free barbecue for local residents as well as an opportunity for the firies to distribute fire safety information.

As a bonus, three new members signed up!

Visitors also left with “Get Ready Queensland” packs supplied by the South Burnett Regional Council.
