It was a big day last Sunday at Banksia Park Puppies, both of the owners of Banksia Park Puppies, Colin and Matt, received 15 year service awards at a ceremony for the local CFA brigade. Giving back to the community is important to Banksia Park, and being a part of the CFA is a very important activity for us, especially living in the country in the bush like we do.
Both Matt and Colin have been actively involved in the CFA for the last 15 years, participating in many training days as well as actively fighting many fires every fire season. This is a great service to the community.
We take fire very seriously at Banksia Park Puppies, and urge all our followers to as well. Before the fire season starts this year, if you are in a high risk area, make sure you plan and prepare for it and know what you plan to do. Victoria is one of the most fire-prone areas in the world, and we need to remember this going into every fire season.
Congratulations to Matt and Colin, and a big thank you to all the CFA volunteers for everything they do for us and all our communities across Australia.
