Mata­mata Ki­wa­nis mem­bers were spe­cial guests at the Mata­mata fire sta­tion re­cently.

As well be­ing given a tour of the sta­tion, they also wit­nessed a demon­stra­tion of the new por­ta­ble bat­tery pow­ered lights they funded for the Mata­mata Vol­un­teer Fire Brigade.

The lights the brigade were us­ing were pow­ered by a gen­er­a­tor.

When at­tend­ing in­ci­dents, in par­tic­u­lar mo­tor ve­hi­cle crashes, fire­fight­ers of­ten had the dilemma of hav­ing to yell at each other over the noise the gen­er­a­tor pro­duced.

All funds raised by Mata­mata Ki­wa­nis is pumped back into the lo­cal com­mu­nity.
