Mo­tat ready for fire day

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Fire en­gines, res­cue dis­plays and ed­u­ca­tion pro­grammes about dis­as­ter prepa­ra­tion are just some of the things on of­fer at Mo­tat’s Fire and Res­cue Day on Sun­day.

The event has proved popular in pre­vi­ous years with thou­sands turn­ing up.

‘‘This is a great op­por­tu­nity for chil­dren and par­ents to learn about how to stay safe in a dis­as­ter sit­u­a­tion in a fun, in­ter­ac­tive way,’’ Mo­tat chief ex­ec­u­tive Michael Fraw­ley says.

The fire ser­vice has been a ma­jor sup­porter of this event for many years and will mix its fire en­gines with some of Mo­tat’s vin­tage fire trucks. Gates open from 10am till 4pm.
