Children from the Goldfields Family Centre are learning about the role of volunteer firefighters and how the CFA protects the community during a visit to the Maryborough Fire Station this week.
The Goldfields Family Centre two four-year-old groups, Kookaburras visited the fire station yesterday while the Echidnas are visiting the site tomorrow at 10am, as part of their extended learning program.
During the visit, Maryborough Fire Brigade volunteer firefighters will discuss their roles, how the CFA helps protect the community and what the children can do to be fire smart.
Visits to the local fire station are an essential part of the Goldfields Family Centre’s extended learning program, Central Goldfields Shire Chief Administrator Noel Harvey said.
“This is a wonderful initiative and it is so important because it gives local children an insight into the role of the CFA and those who protect and serve our community,” he said.
“I thank the Maryborough Fire Brigade volunteers for giving up their time to talk to the children from the Goldfields Family Centre who are sure to benefit from this visit.”
