Flam­ing firies com­pete

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

GET down and cheer on the lo­cal firies this week­end as they com­pete against the best in the Far North fire­fighter com­pe­ti­tion.

Firies from Moss­man and Port Dou­glas are com­pet­ing against 12 other teams from across the re­gion, from Card­well to Thurs­day Is­land and will show-off their skills on both Satur­day and Sun­day.

The aim of the com­pe­ti­tion is to build up core fire­fight­ing skills, with events that can be utilised in a fire, in­clud­ing hose-han­dling, erec­tion of lad­ders and pump op­er­a­tion - and also to have some fun.

There will also be a com­mu­nity safety expo held with a fo­cus on home fire safety.

Lo­cals are en­cour­aged to at­tend and vist home fire safety dis­plays, book a free Safe­home visit, and talk to com­pet­ing of­fi­cers about fire safety mat­ters.

You can catch all the ac­tion at Reynolds Park on David­son St from 7.30am on both days.
