This is a simple reminder of how we as farmers can help the CFA this summer.
   1.    Have fire fighting setups in each paddock getting harvested. 500L of water with a Honda firefighter can do heaps to help control small fires.
    2.    Train your staff how to use it. We don’t need panic on the fire ground from a lack of training.
    3.    Be safe. NO crop or machinery is worth getting burnt for. Thongs are not a good idea. Fires love thongs and bare legs. Get some cotton overalls and boots.
    4.    Help out your mates. When a fire starts the more units that get there the better. Most fires don’t

last long. What’s a couple of hours off harvesting out of a long harvest.     REMEMBER when all the fire fighting units are fighting a fire there is NO-ONE left to help you. Consider pulling up harvest while fire units are deployed.
    5.    UHF 18. This is the Chanel that the CFA uses in our area. Tell the controlling officer that you are on the fire ground and wait for instructions. Remember this officer may be talking on any of 3 radios at any time. Talking to Vic fire headquarters other fire trucks may take priority over farmer units. You are still valuable to the fire ground.
    6.    Fire trucks have huge knock down capacity. BUT they aren’t perfect. If smaller farmer units follow closely behind fire trucks to mop up this will enable trained firefighters to knock down the fire quickly without the need to be perfect.
    7.    We are very lucky to have fire fighting aircraft in our area for harvest. They have rules to follow. If the siren sounds pull off the fire line so they can bomb the fire.  (They won't  drop if a unit is on the fires edge, three ton of water will hit like three ton of bricks). They see more than us from the air and should always be given priority.
    8.    RING 000 if you need it. Although the CFA is volunteer based they would rather fight a small fire or get there after you have put it out than fight a large out of control fire
    9.    Don’t panic. After ringing 000 the second you have given the address or even an area the trucks have been called. All other information is important and won’t slow down the response.
    10.    Please down load the Vic emergency app to get up to date info on fires in our region.  If you have a pager keep it handy.


We’re excited to be hosting our very own NetFIT clinic at Blackburn Park on the 29th of October with Sharni Norder (Layton), an elite athlete across many codes and competitions including Australian Diamonds captain in 2017.

She will be hosting clinics across a range of age groups throughout the day and will be sticking around for a special insider talk and Q&A at the clubrooms for dinner. (at a cost)

It’s an absolute must-attend for all those looking to develop their netball at any level. A brilliant opportunity for all players and community members.

Follow this link to register!

Cost is $40 for the clinic and $5 for the Q&A
