‘GET READY’ FOR BUSH FIRE SEASON
Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George MP today encouraged the community to embrace ‘Get Ready Weekend 2016’ for the bush fire season.
Volunteer firefighters will be out in force holding events and activities in the area on September 10 & 11.
Members of the public are urged to attend and learn how they can be prepared for bushfires as well as know how to act by taking some simple steps to ensure the safety of themselves and their loved ones.
There are many events planned across the state, including firefighting displays, opportunities to get aboard a fire truck, take a picture with a firefighter and see some of their specialist equipment.
Mr George ‘Get Ready Weekend’ is an important part of entering the warmer months where there is a greater risk of bush and grass fires.
“Attending one of these locations will be time well spent to ensure the protection and safety of you and your family,” Mr George said.
