Each year our volunteers organise information sessions called Summer Street Corner Meetings.
These are fairly informal sessions that take about an hour and are a free service to all members of the community. They provide you with important information and tips about how to be “fire ready” for the upcoming fire season.
Every season is different so even if you have attended a meeting before, it’s important to attend one every year.
These meetings are a good opportunity to share views and experiences on managing fire risk, and make contacts or pool resources.
Details on dates and locations appear on this site and our FaceBook page.
