NOTICE OF BRIGADE AGM.

Our postponed AGM will be held on Saturday 25th July. 1830 for a prompt 1900 start.

This years AGM will not be held at the fire shed, the room is too small for the usual number of attendees to attend and fulfil COVID-19 distancing requirements.

Instead, the 2020 AGM will be held at the CWA Hall.

As usual all are welcome to attend, subject to the maximum COVID-19 capacity of the hall. and nominations are being sought for all positions.

We don't have any pictures of an AGM, so here is a random pic of our old Cat1 that is coming up for retirement soon.

With the winter weather across the Monaro being nothing but cold, bush fires are possibly far from our minds.
Just yesterday 2 separate grass fires started from slashers, both of the fires were easily extinguished. These were both a result from slashing in frost cured grass.
Before you slash ask yourself some questions.
How dry is the grass I'm about to slash?
Is my machinery in good condition?
Do I have a fire extinguisher? You must carry on the machinery a 16L minimum capacity knapsack spray pump filled with water; or 9L minimum capacity liquid fire extinguisher; or 0.9kg minimum capacity dry powder fire extinguisher.
Whilst slashing we recommend you have ready access to a farm firefighting unit with ample water to extinguish any fire outbreaks. Consider having someone as an observer to assist.

Call 000 immediately if you start a fire
