Greendale Fire Brigade opened their doors on CFA Sunday under heavy dark clouds and very wet conditions.

The day commenced with a Bushfire Planning Workshop which attracted new families from the area as well as two tourists who were visiting for the weekend.

Families and tourists were thrilled to enjoy the free sausage sizzle and, the children delighted in taking part in “Pin the Helmet on Captain Koala” and competing in the colouring competition. 

Throughout the day, safety information and advice was freely given and received. Visitors were treated to a self-preservation burn over demonstration by brigade members.

The brigade had also planned a haystack fire but sadly, this was not successful as the rain put out the fire faster than the brigade could light it.

“All in all, despite the weather, the day was a great success” said Captain Damian Zabinskas.
