Our 2020 in Canyonleigh




On Saturday 19 September our brigade will be holding an information day as a part of the RFS Get Ready Weekend (19 & 20 September). From 11.00am till 2.00pm  you are invited to visit our Fire Shed, inspect our fire trucks and facilities, meet our members and discuss your fire plan – we will have free Bush Fire Plan preparation kits, information on livestock and pet protection, learn about your bush fire risk and join us for a tea or coffee (gold coin donation is appreciated).

Our members will be on hand to discuss any questions you may have, in particular:

  • to understand the Fire Danger Ratings and know when to leave early
  • to review your Bush Fire Survival Plans
  • info on how to prepare your property
  • how to prepare yourself mentally
  • how to remain informed throughout the fire season of the Fire Danger Rating and Alerts

Following the devastation that the 2019/20 bush fires caused to the north and south of Canyonleigh, we are all aware of the potential threat of bush fire on our area and community.  Visiting us will only take 20 minutes of your time - time that could prove the difference in your and your family's future.



Please mark the date and time in your diary as we would love to see you – especially the newer members of the Canyonleigh community.
