Ballarat City Fire Station was the venue for this years pre-summer briefing to CFA District 15's 62 Brigades.

The night started with Operations officer Gavin Hope welcoming the large crowd and setting the scene for a very interesting night.

The CFA's message was well received by the Brigade management team's who attended which was double that from previous years.

Operations Manager Gray and other Operations Staff all participated in delivering the key messages but the night was an outstanding success with the appearance of guest presenter Jane Bunn from Win News.

Jane enthralled the crowd with her in depth knowledge of the weather and the impact it will have on the forthcoming Bushfire season.

With the CFA members now informed with changes and updates from the CFA and Emergency Services Commisioner and insight into the climatic forecast for the District, Operations Officer Hope believes District 15 have had one of the best briefings pre fire season.

The night finished with the participants remaining around discussing strategies, weather and Brigade prepardness whilst they enjoyed refreshments.
