Pre-Season Preparation of Your Property

With the weather starting to warm up it is time to think about preparing your property before the fire season.  Remove fire hazards from around your house and clean out the gutters.  The CFA website has some great      resources on preparing your property. Every burnoff should be logged by calling VicFire on 1800 668 511. 

Mitchell Shire Council as part of the Safer Together Project has joined with CFA and FFMV and is running a Community Clean Up Challenge  with some great prizes.  Submit before and after pics of the preparation at  your place.  Register for the challenge by 6 October to gain access to CleanUp Challenge resources including free green waste disposal. For more information contact Justine Gard of the Safer Together Project via email or phone 5734 6250.

Only Working smoke alarms save lives.  Do you know someone in the community who needs assistance?

New smoke alarms that have a 10-year lifespan ensure families can feel the highest level of security. Working smoke alarms are your best defense against preventable residential fires, especially during the night, when    people lose their sense of smell. These new alarms provide the security of knowing you and your family are  protected, while ensuring you’re not interrupted every year with a nagging smoke alarm.

Wandong Fire Brigade are participating in a program assisting older or vulnerable members of the community  to have 10-year smoke alarms installed in their homes, at no cost to them.  If you need assistance with having working smoking alarms installed in your home, please call 0419 472 579 (bh) or 5735 3114 (bh) or contact us via our Facebook page.

Junior firefighter program

Junior firefighter sessions are run during the term on Monday nights 6.30 – 8pm. There is no cost to families. Young people between the ages of 11  and 16 years who live in Wandong, Heathcote Junction, Clonbinane and Kilmore are invited to join our Juniors program.  For any queries contact Kylie on 0409 962 172.   This is what one of our juniors wrote :

 “One activity I really enjoyed doing at Juniors was the Search and Rescue.  The engine bay was filled with smoke from the smoke machine, and we had to find a person and a dummy body. I really liked this activity because it looked really cool inside the engine bay and I enjoyed working together to find everything.”
