The Fern Tree Fire Brigade is a volunteer brigade which is part of the Tasmania Fire Service. The brigade's volunteer members are men and women who reside in the Fern Tree district and who are on call 24/7/365 and trained for all all sorts of fire, chemical hazard and rescue situations.

Many of us have friends or know someone who is in the Fern Tree Fire Brigade, but please remember, in an emergency, DO NOT try to contact them directly as you will waste valuable time. 


always DIAL 000 and ask for the required service
