Teamwork helps prevent fires

KANGAROO Flat Community Group and the CFA joined forces to help reduce the risk of a fire. 

Volunteers from both groups delivered eight Fire Ready street corner meetings in Kangaroo Flat during the 2013-2014 fire season. 

Kangaroo Flat residents were provided with information about bushfire safety and got the chance to speak with CFA personnel. 

CFA community education co-ordinator Paul Tangey said the meetings were well-received by the public. 

He said it was important for residents to be fire ready and this was the message the groups were trying to get across. 

"It was a team effort by the CFA and Kangaroo Flat Community Group," he said.
