Sarah Court Pre-School News Article

Last week the Sarah Court Pre-School visited Montrose Fire Station and learned what to do in the case of a fire emergency. We were lucky to all get a turn squirting the fire hose! Back at kinder, the children showed us how carefully they had been listening. They remembered that when there is smoke, they must Get Down Low and GO GOGO – because the smoke floats up high and it’s safer down near the ground. They also remembered that if their clothes catch fire, they should Stop, Drop, Cover their Faces and Roll. We talked about how to ring triple Zero if there is an emergency.Talking to your children at home about these basic safety drills would be great reinforcement. The firefighters at Montrose fire station also suggested that all families should have a meeting spot, so that in the case of fire children can find their parents safely. The letterbox is one suggestion – perhaps you could talk about this with your family, and make sure your children know what to do.

Lucky escape

POLICE are calling for VicRoads to remove a "dangerous" U-turn point on Canterbury Road in Montrose following a serious collision last Thursday.
Two Yarra Ranges truck drivers were lucky to escape serious injury in the peak-hour crash.

Yarra Ranges Highway Patrol's Leading Senior Constable Ron Veldman said a large truck was travelling uphill towards Montrose when its 50-year-old East Warburton driver tried to make a U-turn at a median strip break opposite Arlie Court. He was unable to make the turn in one attempt. Kilsyth-bound traffic came over the rise – which is in a 70 km/h zone - as he tried to reverse.

A tray truck collided with the reversing truck, causing it to spin.
The tray truck continued downhill and collided with a tree, which collapsed on top of it.
Its driver, a 58-year-old Badger Creek man, and the other truck driver suffered only minor injuries.
"It could have been really bad," Leading Sen Const Veldman said. The accident occurred about 3.20pm and disrupted traffic for several hours while tow trucks removed the damaged vehicles and CFA crews soaked up several hundred litres of spilled diesel.
