Free workshop 18 and 25 June at the Community Hub, Goolwa Terrace

Sunday 18 and Sunday 25 of June 2017, from 9am - 4pm at the Community Hub, Goolwa Terrace

CFS Community Engagement Officers Vanessa Geerts and Jackie Horton will be running a FREE Firey Women workshop this winter at Goolwa. The workshop is being run over 2 consecutive Sundays commencing June 18 and concluding on 25 June.

This workshop has been designed to enable women to learn new skills to help them protect their families and properties in the event of a bushfire. Filled with both information and practical skills these workshops will provide you with information for life.

Areas surrounding Goolwa are high bushfire risk areas and Hindmarsh Island is an EXTREME bushfire risk area. Goolwa is the perfect venue to come and find out more to ensure you and the community can make lifesaving decisions in the event of a bushfire.
