WAITATI VOLUNTEER FIRE BRIGADE (column)

WAITATI VOLUNTEER FIRE BRIGADE

By Deanne Burrell

It has been a quiet start to the New Year with a minimal number of
callouts so well done everyone in keeping your community safe. We
have recently attended two motor vehicle accidents and would like to
remind people that when passing an accident scene, please slow down,
as it was noticed that many vehicles did not adjust their speed
accordingly.

It is with regret that we farewell two members of the brigade who have
recently resigned. We would like to thank Richard Peters and Bruce
Moderich for all their hard work and dedication to the Brigade and the
community. We wish you both well for the future.

Members of the brigade are looking forward to the upcoming A&P Show.
The brigade will have a site set up with information on fire safety
and members of the public will also get the opportunity to use a fire
hose. There will also be a miniature Fire Engine providing free rides
for the children. We look forward to a fun-filled day.

On Sunday 11 April we are having an Open Day at the Fire Station from
1pm onwards. We would like to extend an invitation to the public to
come along and have a look around the fire station. There will be
displays to look at and a free sausage sizzle. There will also be
information available for anyone that may be interested in becoming a
Volunteer Fire Fighter with our Brigade. So please mark it on your
calendar and we look forward to seeing you there.

A SMOKE ALARM without a battery

Is as useless as a car without brakes.

Make sure you test your alarms regularly.
