Emer­gency ser­vices come to­gether for expo

New re­view puts turf club at risk

Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

THE town of Moyhu will be busy with horses, trucks and emer­gency ser­vice per­son­nel this Satur­day as ser­vices from all across North East Vic­to­ria come to­gether for the 2018 emer­gency ser­vices expo.

Ca­rina Hep­pell from Wodonga SES has or­gan­ised the event to be aimed at smaller ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties to see what’s avail­able, ed­u­ca­tion for com­mu­ni­ties, net­work­ing for agen­cies, and a chance for emer­gency ser­vice per­son­nel to see what the com­mu­nity in­ter­ests and con­cerns are.

“The 2016 expo was a great suc­cess, and this year we’re ex­pect­ing 1000 peo­ple to at­tend,” she said.

“The event will also fundraise for Moyhu and the funds will go to­wards the Moyhu group brigade.”

The event will in­clude 23 or­gan­i­sa­tions and clubs from across North East Vic­to­ria, po­lice horses, Coun­try Fire Au­thor­ity (CFA) trucks, mo­bile com­mand ve­hi­cles, a raf­fle, and kids ac­tiv­i­ties.

The event is a non-al­co­holic event, a waste free event, and Ca­rina asks for the only an­i­mals to be ser­vice an­i­mals.

The expo will be held this Satur­day from 10am-2pm at the Moyhu Recre­ation Re­serve with gold coin do­na­tion en­try.
