Point Cook Fire Brigade members were out in force at the Christmas by the Lakes event in Sanctuary Lakes this evening (Sat 1 Dec).

The event is the largest community gathering of the year in the Point Cook area and the local brigade plays an important role in helping set up and prepare the site.

Brigade members set up (and take down) the perimeter fencing around the site and this year provided burgers, popcorn and "rides" in North West Metro Region's kiddy fire truck.

As well as being a great opportunity for engaging with the community on fire safety it is also one of the biggest fundraising opportunities of the year for the brigade.

The main attractions this year were the Victoria Police Code 1 band, carols by local school children, Santa's arrival, and a major fireworks display.
