What an amazing day at our Get Ready! Event. Huge thanks to our local emergency services teams, very willing as always to share their knowledge. We learnt about CPR and snakebite management, watched the SES demonstrate their skills at a simulated live car cut and rescue, learnt from Forest Fire Management about being ready and watched the children’s rake hoe activities, learnt about how fires work with the CFA’s fire behavior table and heard about Council’s role in emergency management and community planning, and information from Parks Vic. UGFM supported the event with a live broadcast , it was great to really check out their outdoor broadcast vehicle whilst we were invited to be interviewed. The Foundation was there too, enjoying the chance to talk about our work in Murrindindi Shire and our new fundraising focus. AND then there was the Family Fun Day – so many smiles. Thank you to everyone for your participation, prepared communities are more resilient communities.
