Getting Ready For The Stair Climb
Community Work In A ‘Pretty Quiet’ Month …
Fire Warden – Trevor Henderson – reports that only 4 permits have been issued since last meeting, and so has been very pretty quiet once again due to the rain.

VCE Community Engagement – Hayley Muchow – thanks were given to everyone who helped with carparking at the Bearded Dragon for the Mammoth Market event – it was a very busy day! At the next market event, volunteers will help to educate the public on the new Fire Danger Rating System.
1st Officer Report – Terry Watkins – reports it has been a pretty quiet 2 months with 10 Callouts in total – 5 x RTC, 2 x Structure Fire, 2 x Car Fire & 1 x Other – but we are starting to see some more grass fires popping up around the area, so conditions are starting to become challenging.
2nd Officer Report – Trevor Henderson – the crew recently attended and completed 1 Hazard Reduction (HR) Burn.
3rd Officer Report – Steve Curtis – thanked all members who were involved with the Bearded Dragon parking.
First Aid Course – the next first aid course will be on Saturday the 15th of October – which will be a full day course to cover First Aid, CPR, and Advanced Resus.
