Rats rob our firies

Barwon Heads Fire Brigade was broken into and robbed on the weekend.

Barwon Heads Fire Brigade was unable to attend emergency services for several hours after being broken into and robbed.
Offenders broke into the station headquarters on Sheepwash Road on 27 October and stole a number of items including a generator, chainsaw and a Milwaukee drill kit.
Barwon Heads Fire Brigade captain Helen Wood said the break-in had left members “devastated”.
“As volunteers who love the Barwon Heads community we are doubly upset that this limited our ability to turn out to incidents in our township and beyond for several hours on Saturday,” she said.
“We have since been cleared to turn out. Keeping our community safe is at the heart of why we are members of the Barwon Heads Fire Brigade and this cuts to the core.”
Police are investigating the robbery and anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
“We are co-operating closely with police who are investigating,” Ms Wood said.
“We hope they quickly catch the persons who did this.”
