The Huntly Fire Brigade is opening its doors as it prepares the public for the coming fire season.
Brigade members will be on hand Sunday October 7, conducting training drills and talking about how community members can prepare for a bushfire.
A sausage sizzle and fun activities will take place, including creating fire safety posters, hands-on activities, a treasure hunt and more.
It will also be a chance be a chance to show off the brigade’s newest fire trucks, which the group has been training with in the lead up to the fire season.
Huntly Fire Brigade Captain Tony Jackson said open days were the perfect opportunity for brigades to show the community what they do to keep everyone safe and to deliver valuable fire safety messages.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity for our local community to meet the men and women who work hard to keep them safe from fire and help out in times of emergency,” he said.
“Anyone interested in joining the CFA, whether as a firefighter or in a support role is also welcome to come along for a look and a chat.”
The open day will be held at the Huntly Fire Brigade between 11am and 2pm.
