In late December 2005 seeing the vulnerability of the Seatrees Estate inTwo Rocks to bushfire, the then Chief Bush Fire Control Officer/Community Fire Manager Mike Teraci put forward the idea to form the Two Rocks Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade.
The Seatrees Estate is a special rural estate located about 5 minutes east of the Two Rocks townsite.
This area is protected by the Yanchep Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service for structual and bush fire but it is 20 to 30 minutes away from the Estate. After consultation with the residents in the area there was a good amount of interest in establishing a Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade.
Mike then followed up on the logistical side of forming a new Brigade, including the costs to council, membership, local laws, appliances and a new station.
On April 26th 2006 an agenda item was put forward to Council to consider the establishment of a Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade in the Two Rocks area.
Council endorsed the idea and the Two Rocks Brigade was formed.
Jeff Hord assisted Mike and played a major part in setting up the brigade and was elected the inaugural Captain. Jeff held the position for eight years.
We would like to thank Jeff Hord for all the hard work and effort that he has put in as Captain and a brigade officer – without Jeff this brigade would not exist.
