Vehicle rescue demonstrations, police horses and free child restraint fittings will be among the attractions on offer at this year’s Melton Community Safety Day.

(Victoria Police media release)

The event, which coincides with Community Safety Month, will be held outside the Melton Library and Learning Hub on Sunday, 20 October.

Emergency services, including Victoria Police, SES, and the CFA, will be bringing along some of their big toys including a historical police car and motorbike and a fire truck.

There will also be a mobile police facility, booze bus and children’s activities including finger-printing and demonstrations from Youth and Crime Prevention Officers.

The CFA will run vehicle and fire extinguisher demonstrations and Captain Koala will be on hand to provide information on home fire safety.

The Sheriff will be in town for the day with a mobile justice centre and an example of a clamped car.

The day is not just about emergency services with Melton City Council also supporting the event. 

Parents can take advantage of free vehicle child restraint fittings on the day and there will also be the opportunity to have number plate security screws fitted.

A coloured ticket system will operate and people will be required to collect a ticket for either child restraints or number plates at the Melton Council marquee. Number plate security screws will be available for those who wish to fit their own.
