The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Mem­ber for Lowan Emma Kealy will join state op­po­si­tion emer­gency ser­vices rep­re­sen­ta­tive Brad Bat­tin in meet­ings with fire­fight­ers across her elec­torate on Fri­day.

The meet­ings will be at 10am at Caster­ton CFA Sta­tion, noon at Eden­hope CFA sta­tion, 2.30pm at Dim­boola CFA sta­tion and 4pm at Hor­sham State Emer­gency Ser­vice head­quar­ters. A drop-in ses­sion – Your Fire Ser­vices – Have Your Say, will be at Hor­sham’s Royal Ho­tel at 5pm.

The meet­ings are de­signed for peo­ple to pass on their thoughts about the fu­ture of their fire ser­vices.

Ms Kealy said a par­lia­mentary in­quiry con­firmed the An­drews La­bor gov­ern­ment had failed to con­sult fire­fight­ers be­fore in­tro­duc­ing leg­is­la­tion in an at­tempted po­lit­i­cal fix for the fire ser­vices.

Mr Bat­tin said it was im­por­tant to travel across the state to hear the views of fire­fight­ers to build a strong fire ser­vice.
