FIRE preparation and safety will be on the agenda at the Cape Tavern on Sunday February 5, when the CFA will host a free community breakfast and bushfire information session.
The session welcomes all Bass Coast residents to speak with your local fire brigade and ask bushfire questions from 8.30am.
Over 100 residents attended last year’s session.
Wonthaggi CFA captain Kim O’Connor said it’s a great opportunity for the community to learn about preparing for potential fires.
“We’re engaging with the community and there will be a CFA presenter who will talk about preparing for fires, what to do in the event of fires, different types of warnings and fire danger ratings, and when you should be more cautious than other times,” he said.
“It’s relevant for all Bass Coast residents, not just Cape Paterson.”
Cape Paterson exercise
Local CFA units will conduct a training exercise on Wednesday February 8 and residents can expect to see a number of fire trucks and vehicles in the area.
The vehicles will be driving on tracks along the foreshore between the Cape Surf Beach and the Caravan Park.
Residents are asked not to panic if you see fire trucks on this day and the public is welcome to watch the exercise and ask questions.
The Cape Paterson CFA is looking for new members so it will be a great opportunity to talk to members and see what they do.
