The next two weekends are proving to be the biggest community days of the year, with CFA brigades opening their doors to the public across the state.

Bumper weekends for CFA Open Days

With nearly 100 events scheduled over the two weekends, CFA Open Days are an opportunity for communities to get a better understanding of the work our firefighters do.

Lake Tyers Brigade in East Gippsland is hosting an extra special open day on 19 October, with the open day coinciding with the delivery of the brigade’s brand new slip-on truck. To recognise the significance of this hard-working team CFA has commissioned Aboriginal artwork Working Together to cover the bonnet of the slip-on.

Brigade Captain Charmaine Sellings said the new vehicle is a great addition for the community.

“We protect 4,000 acres of beautiful Australian bush and over 40 homes. The Open Day is a great opportunity to reinforce our fire safety messages and demonstrate what we do for the community.”

Warrandyte Fire Brigade in the suburbs of Melbourne will be having a large Open Day with live demonstrations, fire talks, trucks, food, coffee and a jumping castle.

For more information about the Open Days taking place over the next two weekends, check the CFA website.
