FEBRUARY 2024

WANDONG FIRE BRIGADE

Although there was rain in December and January, and

we have green grass in some areas, fire restrictions remain

in force.  There is still the potential for fires through February

and March.

It is recommended to check the Fire Danger Rating each day.

The electric sign at the front of our  fire station lists the rating each day. Fire Danger Ratings tell you how dangerous a fire could be if one started.

Wandong Fire Brigade Juniors

The juniors have taken a break over the Summer and will recommence at the end of the fire season.  Here are the words from a couple of the juniors at the end of last year.

“Something I enjoy about Juniors is when we use the smoke machines because we learn how to communicate without being able to see or hear and have a challenge and have objects all around us. We also had partners where one of us was blindfolded and the other had to guide them around the obstacles.”  A.

“This term we had a visit from the police and tested the handcuffs, squirted water at cones, and bowled hoses into bowling pins.  One of the best activities this term was doing search and rescue with the paramedics.” E.
