Dalkeith CFS Brigade needs a new Thermal Imaging Camera (TIC) as our current TIC is over 12 years old and cannot be repaired due to the unavailability of required parts. We appreciate that it's a tough time of the year, but if we all could chip in with a few dollars, it would go a long way to help the volunteers of Dalkeith CFS raise enough money to purchase a critical piece of firefighting equipment used to keep our community safe. We thank you in advance for your kind donation and can assure you that every dollar will count towards reaching our goal of acquiring this equipment.
A reliable, modern thermal imaging camera is a critical piece of firefighting equipment used by volunteers to keep our community safe, and is indispensable in the following life-threatening rescue responses:
*Rescuing and locating occupants in house fires
*Locating heat signatures within rooms and walls
*Determining location of burning wires in house appliances
*Finding victims that stray or have been ejected from vehicle’s accident scenes.
While the Para CFS Group more broadly has access to a Thermal Imaging Camera that was recently funded by the State Government, the brigade requires its own individual camera due to the scale and frequency of incidents that our volunteers respond to.
Although the State Government provides funding to keep stations and appliances serviceable, any equipment above the standard fit (such as a Thermal Imaging Camera) is purchased by the brigade from donations, grants or fundraising activities in the community.
So, who are we?
Dalkeith CFS is a volunteer Fire and Rescue agency located in the Playford Council Area of the Northern Suburbs of Adelaide South Australia (SA). We aim to provide a safer community, through protecting life, property and the environment from fire and other emergencies.
The volunteers of the brigade are a mixture of female, male and Cadet members who belong to the local Playford community (Blakeview, Munno Para, Andrews Farm, Angle Vale and surrounds). They are of all ages and volunteer their time to put the local community first, 365 days a year, fighting structural and grass fires, attending hazardous materials and road crash incidents. Dalkeith CFS volunteers attend on average over 450 incidents per year, being one of the busiest SA CFS brigades in the state. Members dedicate at least one day a week training to sharpen their skills and preparedness, maintain appliances and the station. In addition, members attend multiple training courses throughout the year that they can volunteer to attend, where they are provided basic to advanced levels of firefighting skills. Many of our members regularly volunteer to deploy to other states across Australia in support of interstate emergency service volunteers.
Dalkeith CFS also attends many local community events, where members provide and promote information to the community on preparing their premises for the fire season and on what the CFS is all about. Dalkeith CFS members regularly support local events such as ANZAC and Australia days, school open days and local council and community special events.
