CFA lunch boxes ready to roll out
It’s that time of year when preparations for the coolest lunch box in town are underway.
Mernda Fire Brigade has continued its partnership with Smash Enterprises to manufacture mini CFA pumpers which double as a lunch box.
Mernda invites all brigades to use these lunch boxes as a fundraiser. The funds go directly to the brigades involved.
Mernda Fire Brigade began this initiative three years ago and its success has funded additional equipment for the brigade.
“We are building a much-needed rehab unit which will attach to the back of our field command vehicle and hopefully it will be ready by mid-year,” Secretary Tony Coon said.
“Because the fundraiser has been such a success for our brigade, we’re inviting others to get on board and bulk order to use this as a way to raise funds for their own projects.”
These nifty little containers are not just for the little ones; big kids enjoy the fire trucks just as much.
“I get a few laughs when I bring mine for a day of fishing,” Tony said.
Expressions of interest for bulk orders close on 19 June, with expected delivery around August.
