This Sunday 21 May, District 22 is hosting an event that will allow members as well as the public to get up close and personal with a variety of different Fire Services vehicles.

The event will be held at the Mooroopna Recreation Reserve on McLennan Street and run from 10am to 3pm.

There will be BBQ and all proceeds will go towards the recently established District 22 Rehab Vehicle.

District Support Coordinator Lindy Phegan said they initially planned on having a small event to showcase vehicles to CFA members and thank them for their hard work.

“We received a few new appliances in District 22 and we planned to introduce them to all our Members in a Show & Tell type event pre summer,” Lindy said.

“However nature had another plan and we had some pretty bad floods in the area so we had to postpone the event.

“So we started planning the event again as a thank you for a great fire season, and we started gathering even more appliances for the event.

“When we took a final look at the list of trucks we gathered we realised our small Show & Tell event had turned into a Firefighting Expo with over 25 appliances confirmed to attend.

“We thought this was pretty special and a great opportunity to invite the public along as well.

The event will feature vehicles from CFA and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).
