The Aratula Rural Fire Brigade is holding (hopefully the first annual) field day for preseason bushfire awareness on Saturday 4th June, which will run from 11:00am to 5:00pm.

With the next bushfire season officially Commencing on the 1st August, members of the QLD Rural Fire Service (RFS) will be holding a Bushfire Awareness Field Day, at the Aratula Community Sports Complex.

The day is planned to educate new and existing land holders of the potentials they will face with our bush fires.

The day will include information, demonstrations and equipment for all areas, not just Aratula.

The goal is to educate home owners on how they can prepare and manage their own properties (both rural and urban edge) when fire season comes around.

Suppliers of equipment will be present, as well as local fire fighters and personnel for all questions posed.

Blazer Bear will also be in attendance, to talk to children about fire safety, showing them how to “stop, drop and roll” and demonstrating “get down low and go, go, go!”
