Community calls for CFA

Bulla Country Fire Authority (CFA) will be holding an emergency services open day on April 21, and encourages all local residents to attend.

The open day will be held at the station on Green Street, with the activities, including kids activities, to take place from 10am to 3pm.

Lauren Parisi from the Bulla CFA said the day is aimed to recruit new local members to respond to fire calls.

“[The day] is to attract local volunteers to be involved in the CFA and to showcase other emergency services and what they contribute to the community,” she said.

“There will be other emergency services there with their trucks and appliances.. [Attendees] will be able to talk to volunteers and employees about what it means to be a volunteer.”

Ms Parisi said it offers a good opportunity for locals to consider the opportunity for themselves.

“[There will be] kids activities and a sausage sizzle, Bulla bohemian market and the train will be on, so it will be a nice community day,” she said.

The day will include the CFA doing fire truck demonstrations, Victoria Police, State Emergency Services, Greenvale CFA Forward Command Vehicle, Bacchus Marsh Breathing Apparatus Support and St Johns Ambulance CPR Hub.
