West Pittwater Rural Fire Brigade

The West Pittwater Rural Fire Brigade will be holding a Community Fire Safety day on Saturday 21st July 2012 starting at 11.00 am.
We will be demonstrating the use of extinguishers in the home and discussing the safety of chimney fires and fires within the home. There will also be a spectacular kitchen fire scenario you will want to see, but not in your kitchen!
We will also have a great deal on buying a fire extinguisher/fire blanket for your house. (You do have one don’t you?)
We encourage all residents of the Bays and the Island to attend.  Saturday 21 July 11.00 am at Elvina Station. There will be a BBQ afterwards.

Has your child expressed interest in learning to drive or just got their learner license?

Come along to a free workshop for parents and supervisors of learner drivers which will be held by the Roads and Maritime Services and Pittwater Council at Mona Vale Library on Wednesday 8 August from 6.30pm.

The course, ‘Helping Learner Drivers Become Safer Drivers’, will offer parents and supervisors hands-on advice on how to provide the most effective driving practice for learner drivers.

The Council’s Road Safety Officer Michelle Carter said licence conditions for learner drivers meant there was a minimum of one year on ‘L’ plates and 120 hours of supervised driving, including a mandatory 20 hours of night-time driving.

“A more rigorous driving test has also been introduced, focusing on hazard perception and driver reactions,” Ms Carter said.

“Parents and supervisors of novice drivers have a crucial role to play in making our roads safer, and that is why the RMS has developed a course to better support them.”

The free course will cover topics such as:
  • laws for learner and P-plate drivers
  • how to use the Learner Driver Log Book
  • how to plan on-road driving sessions
“Parents and supervisors who have attended this course found it boosted their confidence, helped them better plan driving sessions and allowed them to share experiences with other parents and supervisors,” added Ms Carter.

The workshop will run from 6.30 to 8.30pm. Bookings for the Helping Learner Drivers Become Safe Drivers course are essential and can be made by calling Michelle Carter from Pittwater Council on 9970 1196 or by email at michelle_carter@pittwater.nsw.gov.au.
