Queensland Fire and Emergency Services are holding an Open Day with the theme “Stronger Together” at various locations across Queensland on Saturday (September 28).
A QFES spokesperson said this was an opportunity to say “hi” to local fire and emergency crews, thank them for their efforts in fighting recent bushfires and learn how to prepare for bushfire seasons.
Station tours and help on how to prepare a Bushfire Survival plan will be offered from 9:00am to 11:00am at:
- Blackbutt Fire and Rescue Station, 72 Hart Street
- Wondai Fire and Rescue Station, 82 McKenzie Street
