FOLLOWING an accident in June this year where a single vehicle veered off the road and into the Country Fire Authority (CFA) bell outside the Mooroopna CFA building along Echuca Road, the Mooroopna Fire Brigade are getting their hands dirty to repair damages to the nature strip and gardens.
With works to remove trees last week, the coming weeks will see the brigade install instant turf and a sprinkler system, with plans to further re-model the front garden next year.
Mooroopna Fire Brigade Captain, Ray Stockwell said, “After the accident earlier this year, there was glass strewn through the lawn and so we made the decision to remodel the whole front and remove the trees.
“At the moment we are pretty busy with the fire danger period but in Autumn or Winter next year, we hope to finish the garden off and install more plants.”
