Dubbo Photo News - - Lovin’ local - By DARCEE NIXON

PRI­MARY school stu­dents from Geurie, Bal­limore and Eu­mun­gerie par­tic­i­pated in a ‘Thank You Firies’ day at Geurie Public School on Fri­day, March 2. Stu­dents learned about bush fire and house fire safety with fun ac­tiv­i­ties and made new friends along the way. Stu­dents also had a look at Geurie Ru­ral Fire Ser­vice’s (RFS) new Cat 1 truck and had a go at us­ing the wa­ter hoses. Orana Fire Con­trol Cen­tre brought a mo­bile com­mand cen­tre for the kids to have a look at, and there was an in­flat­able smoke house from Syd­ney so the kids could learn how to act in the event of a fire. There were also fire-re­lated races and games run­ning through­out the day.
