Glenorie Rural Fire Brigade News
Easter Bunnies, Fuel Management Burns and Recruitment
Thank you to all who popped in to the stand at the Easter Sunday Glenorie Growers Market. The brigade provided a very cute Easter Bunny, assisted a resident with first aid until an ambulance arrived, as well as recruiting for more volunteers and providing winter Fire Safety information.
There has been a lot of smoke in the air around Glenorie throughout April with several HR/FM (Hazard Reduction/Fuel Management) Burns going ahead. Keep an eye on the Woolworths noticeboard for information on HR/ FM burns in our area. Just a reminder; these burns will only ever reduce the danger of a severe fire. Your personal property preparation is still the key to your property survival should a fire occur.
The brigade Information and Recruitment day was very successful. Thank you to James who organised the day and to all who attended, and welcome to our new members. They have already begun training. Not all recruitment day visitors have a helicopter drop in, but it did add a little excitement as Firebird 1 landed in the park beside the station. It was being used to assist with the Glenorie Creek HR.
