Red Balloon Day

Rob Mitchell MP recently visited the crew at Gisborne CFA to present a brand new Australian National Flag, as well as deliver some ‘Thank you Fireys’ balloons to promote National Red Balloon Day.

National Red Balloon Day is February 28. It is a day when the entire community joins together to honour and thank firefighters across the country.

To show your appreciation, simply tie a red balloon to your letterbox, fence, business window or a ribbon from your car on this day.

You can help raise all-important funds for our fireys by purchasing official merchandise on the National Red Balloon Day website at

All funds raised will go straight back to our local fire services.11002489_10153169489000362_3416244178017263977_n10985243_10153169488840362_7269330718907670750_n
