The Riddells Creek Fire Brigade knows the power of the community.

By working in partnership with other community organisations, the brigade has once again shown its strength and ability to engage with and harness the power of the local community.

Following the recent spate of break ins, thefts and vandalism to CFA fire stations and other community assets, the Riddells Creek brigade looked for an opportunity to engage with their community in order to improve the security of its fire station and other community assets.

In partnership with Neighbourhood Watch, the brigade took the opportunity at the new tanker handover ceremony this weekend to educate the community about what to look out for and what to do if they see any suspicious activities around community buildings.

The feedback from the community was very positive and many community members showed a willingness to help and were pleased to be able to support their community.
