Brigade Life Membership
Life membership of the Wamboin Volunteer Rural Fire Brigade is reserved for relatively rare if not exceptional cases. It is awarded by the Brigade and not by the NSW Rural Fire Service to a living person who is a past or present member of the Brigade and only when the member has provided "Meritorious Service" to the Brigade.
"Meritorious Service" is above and beyond the normal call of duty and has been judged by the Brigade as being of substantial benefit to the Brigade and provided by a person over an extended period of time.
A copy of the guidelines for granting Life membership is held by the Brigade Secretary.
