Rob Mitchell MP recently visited the crew at Gisborne CFA to present a brand new Australian National Flag, as well as deliver some ‘Thank you Fireys’ balloons to promote National Red Balloon Day.

National Red Balloon Day is February 28.  It is a day when the entire community joins together to honour and thank firefighters across the country.

To show your appreciation, simply tie a red balloon to your letterbox, fence, business window or a ribbon from your car on this day.


You can help raise all-important funds for our fireys by purchasing official merchandise on the National Red Balloon Day website at 

All funds raised will go straight back to our local fire services.
