Summer is just around the corner and the Coly Fire Rural Brigade want to keep their community safe. 

This weekend is the annual Get Ready Weekend. The event aims to help locals develop a fire plan ahead of scorching summer weather. 

The local brigade will be showing off their new tanker, putting on activities as well as providing the community with fire safety information.

The event gives Coleambally residents the chance to develop a free plan and advice from their local volunteer firefighters. 

They will be able to discuss personal risks and how locals can best protect their homes from fire.

The Get Ready Weekend will be taking place on Sunday September 17 between 10am – 2pm at the Fire Brigade headquarters on Bencubbin Avenue.
