SCOTLAND ISLAND RURAL
Rural Fire Service Open Day & Get Ready
9am to 3pm on Sunday
The Rural Fire
Service Open Day & Get Ready Weekend is a key step in preparing the
island and its residents for the upcoming fire season.
year we are hosting a fire shed dinner on Saturday September 12 and we
are opening the fire shed from 9am to 3pm on Sunday September 13.
There will be a number of important and fun activities during Open Day
on September 13 including:
If you have been thinking about joining the Brigade it will also be a
great opportunity to talk to members of both the Community Fire Unit
and the regular brigade.
- Live fire extinguisher and fire blanket
demonstrations – find out what it is really like to use a fire
- Smoke alarm demonstrations – see how they work
and how much smoke is required for one to go off
- Let the kids use a variety of fire hoses to see
what it is like putting out a bushfire
- Review our emergency evacuation map for all
island properties and make sure we know exactly how to find you if you
need emergency assistance
- Prepare a bushfire survival plan for your family
The BBQ will be running from 10am so bring the family down and have
morning tea, lunch or afternoon tea on us.
