A number of CFA brigades along and off the Warburton Highway will open their doors on Sunday, 29 October, as part of fire awareness and education ahead of the bushfire season.
Brigades have a range of activities planned to ensure residents are well-informed and well prepared for whatever the season might bring, and to meet local brigade volunteers and find out more about what they do.
Wesburn-Millgrove Fire Brigade is hosting a family fun day including tours of the Community Fire Refuge and lots of activities to keep the kids entertained while brigade members talk with parents.
A highlight of the Warburton CFA Open Day is a live ABC broadcast from 10am to noon to celebrate Warburton accessing essential emergency information via 96.1FM.
Yellingbo Rural Fire Brigade will have a full range of activities from 10am to 4pm including Horses in bushfire presentation at 11am and a Horse Rescue demonstration at noon.
At Gruyere there is a community meeting at the station at 11am.
Hillcrest Brigade at Woori Yallock will have their open day on Wednesday evening from 6.30pm to 9.30pm.
Activities at various brigades will include fire-fighting demonstrations, tours of brigade stations, a driver-eye view from the big red trucks, sausage sizzles and more.
Check with your local brigade for details of times and specific activities and take the opportunity to be in the know ahead of what is being forecast as an extreme fire season.
