The Strathfieldsaye brigade has been busy with community engagement over the last month, with its latest event at the recent Christmas street party at Villawood Properties Imagine housing estate, Strathfieldsaye.

Brigade members played the role of Captain Koala and Santa and the brigade appliances made a grand entrance with their special passengers.

Santa took several Christmas list requests from the younger participants and a little later Captain Koala provided much entertainment with his jiving to the live music and was even seen doing a great job at the Nutbush!

There is a more serious aspect to the relationship that has been forged between Strathfieldsaye Brigade and Villawood. Arrangements have been made by the brigade to distribute CFA fire awareness kits to new block and home buyers at the estate. During the Christmas festivities Captain Koala found time to pay a visit to the many display homes to deliver information kits.

Strathfieldsaye brigade would like to thank Jenny Turner from Villawood Properties for the invitation to be involved and looks forward to an on-going partnership as Imagine Estate grows into the future.

In mid November Strathfieldsaye partnered with Axe Creek brigade to provide fire awareness information stands at the Strathfieldsaye shopping centre. Brigade members fielded many enquiries from the public and Captain Koala again was ‘king of the kids’.
