Static Water Supply

Pindimar/ Tea Gardens Rural Fire Brigade are asking locals with pools, tanks or dams on their property to consider putting a Static Water Supply (SWS) sign outside the property so that firefighters know where they can access water in the event of a fire.

A representative from the NSW Rural Fire Brigade spoke of the importance of water supplies in the event of a bushfire.

“During bushfires, firefighters often have difficulty getting enough water as there is not always enough water in the mains to fight a major bushfire.

“Static water supplies with a capacity of over 3000 litres such as swimming pools, tanks and dams may be vital sources of water for firefighters.”

For those wishing to receive one of the signs, contact the Brigade.
