The 2014 Bushfire and Emergency Services Expo is now less than a week away and members of the Riddells Creek Fire Brigade are busily preparing for yet another successful expo.
This year’s expo will take place this Saturday 29th November at the Riddells Creek Primary School from 10am to 4pm. This day promises to be an exciting day for the Riddells Creek community with the Riddells Creek Village Street Festival taking place from 4pm, followed by a CFA torchlight street march from 7pm (further details below).
“The large grassfire which threatened the township during February this year should serve as an important reminder to all people living in the Macedon Ranges of the risks of grassfire and bushfire” said Dean Anderson, Community Safety Manager for the Riddells Creek Fire Brigade. “People living in the Macedon Ranges are encouraged to learn from what we witnessed last summer and take the chance to get along to this years expo” said Dean.
The annual expo is believed to be the only one of its kind in Victoria where the public can have access to everything they need to plan and prepare for bushfire. For further details about this years expo visit www.riddellcfa.com/expo.htm
