Career firefighters from Springvale brigade took time between call outs to meet with the community and chat to them about home fire safety.

The community engagement session took place at Parkmore Shopping Centre, in cooperation with the managment of the centre, during the morning rush of shoppers on Saturday 20 July.

During the session, which ran from 10am until the crew were responded to assist at a motor vehicle accident, the guys met with just over 150 shoppers. Shoppers were given CFA's latest Home Fire Safety brochure and had their questions answered on topics ranging from fire safety through to volunteer and career firefighter recruitment.

On the back of today's successful session, Springvale brigade will hold similar meetings in the future with the intention of branching further into the mutlilingual delivery of fire safety messages.
