Heyfield Fire Brigade members attended the Heyfield Timber Festival to entertain locals and pass on fire safety information.


Thousands of people flocked to the popular Heyfield Timber Festival on the weekend of 17-18 February.

The Heyfield Timber Festival has been running since 2021, and Heyfield Fire Brigade has supported the event every year. 

This year, Heyfield brigade members spoke to more than 1,500 people including familes. Not only did the brigade provide fire safety information and important resources, they also made sure there was a lot of fun for the children. 

The brigade made wooden fire trucks to provide an additonal activity for the children, who raced each other squirting the trucks with hoses. This was a huge hit.  

"This has been the biggest year yet. The brigade did such a fantastic job and was so well received by the community," Brigade Training Officer and key organiser Phil Graham said.

"Next year the organisers might extend the festival for an extra day because of its popularity."
