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.
