Fire Safety Talk by QLD Fire Rescue for Kawana Forest Residents


To all current KaFRA members and friends of KaFRA:

Following on from my recent email (8 Feb) regarding our onsite meeting with the QLD Fire Rescue team, we have received many expressions of interest to organise a Kawana Forest Community: Prepare. Act. Survive information session.  This will be run by the QLD Fire Rescue Izone Officer, who is familiar with our estate and surrounds.


Where: The Kawana Forest Meeting Place

When: Wednesday 27 March 6.30pm

RSVP: email to me or FB event

Come along and bring all the family so you can be prepared together. We have also published this invitation on our Facebook page to pick up some non-member residents who follow us but we don’t have time to get a newsletter out beforehand so please share this invitation with your neighbours and friends in our estate.

Kawana Forest bridge linking to Birtinya

At our recent KaFRA committee meeting, we raised with Cr Baberowski (who regularly attends our meetings) some residents concerns regarding the area under the bridge linking KF to Birtinya. The issues were the graffiti, lighting, pathway flooding in heavy rains and not draining away quickly, safety and a peppercorn (invasive) tree nearby that needs removal. We also supplied the following video. A SCC docket has been raised and will be investigated. Although it seems to be a simple matter, the issues are that TMR own the bridge, no onsite power, PEPTED parameters and solar lighting expenses etc. We will keep you posted on the outcomes post the site meeting to see if a way forward can be found. Especially as usage of this area will increase with the new Oceanside centre opening, the Meridan playing fields and more local residents using this pathway to the hospital.
