Fire Safety talk

ffvs

On Monday the 3rd of June, we were delighted to welcome Dave from the local MFB (Metropolitan Fire Brigade) to provide an informative talk on fire safety. The presentation was entertaining and after a brief history of the MFB Dave captivated the audience with important safety tips within the home including: placement and maintenance of smoke alarms, fire extinguishers, deadlocks, electrical power boards, flammable materials and heating devices.

Dave passed around some items for people to have a hands-on look at some of the equipment used around the home, but most impressive was a shiny brass helmet which was in use up until 1973.

The program was followed by a program of gentle exercise and a warming lunch befitting the cool weather of the season.

‘Aivoriihi’ programs run on the first Monday of every month, and our next event will be held on 1 July at Sanctuary Lakes Hotel for a buffet lunch: Christmas in July. More information in our events calendar.
