well as suppressing fires, the CFA is responsible for preventing
fires and developing community education programs for both summer
wildfire safety and winter house fire safety.
The Riddells Creek Fire Brigade provide a number
of fire safety education programs to kindergarten and school children
throughout the year.
In addition to this we also arrange for a number
of “FireReady” street corner meetings which take place
in recognised high fire-risk areas around Riddells Creek each summer
and seek to educate community members about house preparation and
what to do when threatened by wildfire. Information regarding upcoming
meetings in Riddells Creek can be found here.
