Snow session teaches kids fire safety essentials

A school holiday session held by the Mt Buller Fire Brigade on Wednesday 30 June aimed to help the next generation be fire safe.


The brigade was approached by Buller Ski Lifts to see if they would be interested in holding a session to educate the children in their school holiday program, and the brigade jumped at the chance.

Set up in the main section of Buller Village Central, six members of the brigade taught the children the foundations of fire safety, including understanding how fire spreads and how to call Triple Zero (000) in the event of an emergency.

Alpine Commander Mark Owens said it was a great way to introduce the kids to the basic concepts of fire safety.

“The kids were able to understand that the fire brigade is there to help, not just here at Mt Buller but at home as well,” he said.

“Understanding fire safety as kids builds a solid foundation for the future.”

The general public were also able to stop by, learn about the specialised snow-specific fire equipment and ask any questions they may have about fire safety.
