RFS - Something Nasty in the Shed? - 17 May 2015
17 May 2015 - 10:00pm

SOMETHING NASTY IN THE SHED?

Farmers and firefighters know that the scariest thing at a farm fire is The Shed. Farm sheds can be killers.

“It’s in the shed that you will find explosives, poisons, machinery, all the things which make the farming life so dangerous,” says Captain Graham Povey of the Colinton Rural Fire Brigade.

“The Safer Sheds Open Day will highlight the dangers which firefighters, farmers, and members of the public might face when there is a fire on a farm,” says Captain Povey.  “We want everyone to come to Ingelara, have a barbecue and a good day out, and go home with a better understanding of the perils of the farm shed.”

The Colinton and Bredbo Rural Fire Brigades will hold a Safer Sheds Open Day at  Ingelara, 4931 Monaro Highway, Colinton from from 10am to 3pm

Exhibits and demonstrations will include handling and storage of explosives, toxins and sprays, snakes and vermin, machinery, asset protection zones and more. The Brigades will provide a free barbecue for visitors.
