The Lansdowne Rural Fire Brigade conducted a training day last weekend on a number of important subjects they need to be aware of. They included overrun procedures, gas cylinder approaches, first aid and proper use of a defibrillator or AED and correct wearing of personal protective clothing.
Thanks to their training officer Bruce Crossingham for the scenarios undertaken. The brigade members give up their time to have regular training days which means our community can depend on the members being able to address any situation they could be called out to attend. We are truly fortunate to have them.
They will soon have the most important task they must do annually, driving Santa around to see all the children in our community. Christmas is here.
