Factory blaze extinguished A FIRE broke out at a Carrum Downs factory last week. Emergency services attended the raging blaze on Concord Crescent just after 11pm on 25 February. Teams from multiple fire stations worked together to fight the fire. A statement on the Carrum Downs Fire Brigade Facebook page read “quick work by the crews prevented the fire from spreading to the adjoining factories, with an aerial appliance from FRV Fire Station 25 Oakleigh

utilised to attack the fire from above.” They were joined by crews from FRV stations 91 Frankston and 90 Patterson River. “With multiple crews in breathing apparatus, the specialist breathing apparatus unit from Bayswater Fire Brigade-CFA, was responded to assist with supplying fresh air for the breathing apparatus. Another specialist appliance carrying rehabilitation gear from Somerville Fire Brigade, was responded and assisted Am-

bulance Victoria crews with health monitoring and rehab. “Additional crews from Skye Fire Brigade (CFA), Mt Eliza Fire Brigade, Noble Park Fire Station, Keysborough Fire Brigade and Edithvale Fire Brigade (CFA) were brought in to support with additional breathing apparatus operators to help with overhauling the fire scene.” Victoria Police and the Environment Protection Authority Victoria personnel also attended.

It’s never you, until it is.

More people die on farms than in other workplaces – let’s change that. You might think you’re bulletproof and know your land like the back of your hand. But accidents can happen to anyone. You can prevent accidents. You can prevent deaths. Frankston Times
