Have you ever wanted to look inside a fire truck, explore high-tech police vehicles or learn more about the amazing work of our local emergency services staff?
In celebration of Community Safety Month, the City of Boroondara is inviting residents to attend the Emergency Services Display Day - a fun, interactive and family-friendly event to be held at the Boroondara Farmers Market on Saturday 21 October.
Representatives from Victoria Police, Metropolitan Fire Brigade, Ambulance Victoria and St Johns Ambulance, Life Saving Victoria, Red Cross, SES and Neighbourhood Watch will all be on hand to answer questions from the public, as well as host a variety of stalls that feature entertaining activities and resources about safety.
Children will also love exploring the emergency services vehicles - which will include a Melbourne Fire Brigade truck, a Victoria Police Brawler van and sedan - while grownups can receive invaluable information on ways we can all work together to keep our community safe and healthy.
Mayor of Boroondara, Cr Phillip Healey, encouraged residents to head down to the event.
“The Emergency Services Display Day is a great opportunity to meet face to face with the amazing men and women who work hard to keep our community safe, and learn more about the incredible work they do,” he said.
“As a community we all have a responsibility to help make our local area a safe and enjoyable place to be, and this event will help share some wonderful insights on how we can do just that.”
