Mt Wilson / Mt Irvine Rural Fire Brigade is in the West Sector of the Blue Mountains District of the NSW Rural Fire Service and serves the villages of Mount Wilson and Mountt Irvine and surrounding areas, which includes the northern area of the Blue Mountains from near Bell to near Mt Tomah.
The Brigade is a volunteer emergency response organisation comprising people who have property in the two villages or an interest in the area. About 70% of our active members live off the mountains mostly in Sydney. So the Brigade relies on the 30% who live locally as the first response to most incidents. However, the off mountain active members give the Brigade a depth to respond to long running and major incidents.
Mt Wilson / Mt Irvine is currently one of the most active brigades in the Blue Mountains.
