As the Easter holidays provide an opportunity for families to enjoy the great outdoors, Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) is reminding holiday-goers to practice campfire safety.

Firefighters will be at the Queensland Combined Emergency Services Academy to demonstrate the dangers of extinguishing campfires with sand and how the temperature of a smothered fire can remain unsafe even hours after the flames have disappeared.

WHERE: 15 Howard Smith Dr, Port of Brisbane
WHEN: 12pm Friday, 5 April 2019
