The CFA Mobile Education Buses (MEBU) Roadshow is again rolling into holiday hotspots this summer.

In the past two years, the Roadshow team have spoken to almost 20,000 holidaymakers in 90 locations across Victoria. This year the team is focusing on tourists and travellers to give them advice about their personal fire safety and the risk of fire while they enjoy their holiday. The two buses will also be out and about supporting fire operations.

The buses have the capability to provide fire safety information as well as timely, accurate and real-time information to those communities impacted by fire and other incidents. They can be set up in just seven minutes to engage with a community and can then easily be packed up and move on to the next location.

A few improvements to the program have been made this summer. So if you are holidaying or you see the buses in your local area, make sure you drop in and say hello. Local Brigades will be notified and invited to come down to the bus when they visit.

If you would like to book a bus to come to your community, please contact your regional Community Education Coordinator.
