Fire crews on sweet mission
Biloela fireys bring back lolly drop
BILOELA Fire Station will have bells and whistles going on Christmas Eve, letting the kids and the grown-up ones know there is only one more sleep until Christmas Day.
The local fireys will be doing a lolly drop around town to make the kids’ afternoon.
Auxiliary firefighter Gus David said it’s a great community moment for everyone to celebrate to Christmas.

“It helps with community spirit and it makes the kids happy and excited to see the lights and sirens going on the fire trucks,” Mr David said.
“The older fireys used to do it and we are now bringing it back for these kids.
“I love it when you see the kids’ faces and this helps to let them know about emergency services in general.”
At around 3pm, two or three fire trucks will depart from the fire station and bring some Christmas joy to the residents.
“All donations for the lolly drop are greatly appreciated and shows a great community spirit getting behind and supporting it,” he said.
The firefighters will head out along Moura Rd, just past the caravan park.
They will also cover Saras Lane, Baileys Lane, Muirs Rd and Paynes Rd.
Mr David urged everyone to look after each other this festive season.
