Popular Stories

Wandong Fire Brigade will host an open day on April 29 and is inviting the community along to see its facilities and meet volunteers.

This year’s open day will be the first the brigade has held since the COVID-19 pandemic and the first at the Wandong CFA building since it was refurbished several years ago, with previous open days hosted at Wandong Plaza.

Wandong CFA first lieutenant Heath McSolvin said the open day was a chance for the community to ask questions of volunteers, experience the brigade’s facilities and see how the CFA worked.

“The main aim of our open day is to recruit new volunteers for the brigade as well as continuing to educate the local community about fire behaviour, the importance of smoke alarms and keeping their chimneys clean coming into winter,” he said.

“Even if you’re not interested in being a volunteer, it’s a good opportunity to come down and have a look around to see how your community brigade operates.”

The brigade prides itself on its diverse team of volunteers and its junior brigade, which will also run a demonstration of fire fighting skills alongside an interactive fire behaviour exhibition on the day.

The Wandong CFA open day will run from 12 to 4pm on April 29 at the Wandong Fire Brigade building, located at 79 Rail Street.
