Stephen headed into Runanga – Home of Champions to capture the Runanga Fire Brigade Open Day.
A wonderful display of what it takes to be a modern fire fighter.
There was something for everyone and there was a great turn out to show support as these guys (and girls!) are all volunteers.
The displays were fantastic – both interesting, fascinating and a learning experience. What not to do in the case of a kitchen fire – don’t put water on burning oil!
and we all know with our fire brigades it not just about putting out fires but their expertise is also required at car accidents.
and not to be forgotten they are there in the ready for chemical spills too.
These guys do a fabulous job – they are all volunteers and this was a great day out showcasing a variety of their skills. The open day for the Runanga Fire Brigade wasn’t just to give the locals a day out it was a drive for volunteers. Often taken for granted until we need them. Well done guys – we sure appreciate the great job you do.
Jan and Stephen run Breakers Boutique Accommodation on the Great Coast Road north of Greymouth. They enjoy getting out and supporting local events.
