Presented by: Western Bay Museum
Our latest exhibition — “70 Years of the Katikati Volunteer Fire Brigade” — opens March 5th and is intended to celebrate this outstanding 70 years of community service. Answer our call and come in and view what others do in the name of service and protecting our community.
We share stories of the honours and “Gold Star” service awards, the fire chiefs, the never-ending training in today’s conditions, and the changes from firefighting to emergency response. The call out statistics in this past year recorded at 181 call outs which is interesting to see the breakdown. They are all covering so many different incidents from fires, false alarms, road accidents and health calls (until St Johns can get there).
We truly hope that everyone comes to visit this exhibition – it is free to all ratepayers and residents of Western Bay District. We hope to educate the public and make them think about their actions, and what and who is at risk when the siren calls.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the sponsors of this exhibition, Taylor Bros. Transport Ltd.
The Western Bay Museum is located at 32 Main Road in Katikati and as noted, is free to Western Bay residents and ratepayers and is open Monday to Friday from 10 am to 4 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm.
