Big Sunday Expo in September
CFA will be joined by SES, DEPI, MFB on 14 September for the 2014 Emergency Services Project Expo, a special event to showcase innovation and initiatives across the sector.
The event, open to all CFA members along with their family and friends, will be held from 10.30am to 5pm at the Darebin Arts & Entertainment Centre, Bell St Preston – parking and entry free.
Executive Director Performance and Strategy David Spokes said that projects were integral to the way work was done across the sector to develop new technology, buildings, equipment, vehicles and a whole range of products and programs.
“Following a great day last year with our pilot Project Expo at Burwood, I’m very pleased that our sister agencies will be joining us to make the event truly reflect the efforts across the sector to make our communities safer,” he said.
“The concept is all about getting people together in the same place and creating the kind of dynamic atmosphere that’s conducive to the sharing of good work and ideas.
“I’d encourage all members to save 14 September into their diary and to promote the event widely to your networks. This date has been chosen to be volunteer friendly and we anticipate a strong level of interest.
David also encouraged CFA members involved with a past or present project to consider nominating for one of the indoor or display sites allocated to CFA.
Darebin Arts & Entertainment Centre is adjacent to the Ray Bramham Gardens , a lovely spot for a walk or a picnic (Chlidren’s play equipment located in Newman St Reserve). A cafeteria will be open at the venue, and a McDonald’s restaurant is located across the road from the venue.
