The Upper Ferntree Gully Fire Brigade has served the community since 1926. The fire station is located on the north side of Burwood Highway, just before the railway bridge (Melways map 74 F6).

All houses and the whole of Upper Ferntree Gully are protected by volunteer firefighters. We rely on your support to keep the brigade working effectively.

The Upper Ferntree Gully Fire Brigade is a Volunteer fire brigade, with all our members drawn from the local community. We're always looking for new members to join our team.
