With the help of funding from MTCF, Murrindindi’s local radio station. UGFM, purchased a Ford transit van to fit out as a mobile studio (outdoor broadcast vehicle) to support, strengthen and promote community events and activities across the Shire. UGFM is a volunteer based community organisation and is a designated emergency services broadcaster. The outdoor broadcast unit will enable greater flexibility for UGFM to broadcast directly from community events. UGFM played a key role in broadcasting the fire status during and after the 2009 bushfires. This new outdoor broadcast vehicle will provide additional capacity for crucial information distribution to the community in future emergencies and disasters.
