The program features a local CFA brigade and a local primary school joining forces to deliver the program. 

In 2018, as part of the program, Strathewen Primary school produced a Claymation video that demonstrates the students' knowledge of their unique area, and its history with fire. 

On the 10th anniversary of the 2009 bushfires, take a look at how the kids in Strathewen are leading the way when it comes to bushfire education.
