Noble Park Fire Brigade hosted its most successful CFA Sunday yet, with an estimated 250 members of the public passing through it doors. 

The day gave the opportunity for the community to meet their Fire Fighters, receive information on fire safety and gain a better understanding of the CFA.

The day consisted of tours of the station and its facilities, a free sausage sizzle, CFA show bags for the kids (with posters, stickers, colouring pages, Fire Hat etc), educational material promoting Fire Safety for parents, fire safety advice, and displays of the fire trucks and equipment.  Demonstrations were also held including giving children, and some adults, the opportunity to be at the end of the hose and squirt water (some children initially didn’t understand that yelling “water on” didn’t mean getting water on the person yelling “water on”).

A number of guests also called past, including the Brigade Administrative Support Officer, CFA District Instructor, CFA District Finance and Admin Manager, and Emanuele Cicchiello who is the Liberal Candidate for the Seat of Bruce.  Santa also stopped by to say hello, on his way to the Noble Park Football Social Club Christmas Function, at which Noble Park Pumper 1 delivered him to over 900 screaming children (this has been a tradition for many years). It was also a great opportunity to promote CFA Sunday to the crowd who were attending this function just down the road.

Thanks to all members who participated and the CFA who provided resources to make this day such a great success.
