The Basket Range CFS station is located in a picturesque valley overlooking orchards of cherries, apples and pears, with vineyards, natural scrub and the Camelot Castle reception complex all within sight from the front doors.
The brigade was formed in 1969 after a fire in Cranwell’s Garage highlighted the lack of fire cover in the Basket Range area. The original station building, located adjacent to the Basket Range War Memorial Hall has been replaced with a modern building in the same location, now housing 2 appliances and around 28 enthusiastic members.
New members are most welcome – the brigade is currently seeking males & females aged 14 years upwards, to train as firefighters and radio operators.
