The 10 minute DVD will be used to give prospective Community Fireguard members a snapshot of what the program is, how it works, and highlights the many and varied benefits of being involved in the Community Fireguard program.
It has also been put together to help spread the word internally, within CFA.
The Community Fireguard program is about to begin its 20th year and has consistently proven to produce positive behaviour change in the community members who take part in it. Many CFA members would like to know more about this successful bushfire safety program.
Included on the DVD are some fantastic interviews with a Community Fireguard facilitator and three Community Fireguard group members. Facilitator Lisa Keedle provides an excellent insight into how Community Fireguard works and explains the benefits of learning and preparing for bushfire in a group setting.
Guided by questions from film maker, the Community Fireguard members shared their personal experiences of Community Fireguard. With 35 years of Community Fireguard involvement between them, they certainly have a lot of fantastic things to say!
The DVD will be included as part of a promotional package available to community members who would like some more information about Community Fireguard, or who need some help getting their neighbours involved and forming a Community Fireguard group.
