BONDI Rescue star Trent “Maxi” Maxwell has visited schools on Russell and Macleay islands to talk about fire and water safety.
Best known for his role in the television series, Mr Maxwell now works as a firefighter for NSW Fire and Rescue.
Mr Maxwell ran his new Live Learn Survive workshops that covered beach safety and signage and home fire safety.
He hoped the students would go home and check in with their families about the importance of having working smoke alarms and a family emergency meeting point.
Redlands MP Kim Richards said important information was passed on to students at the workshops.
“Water and fire resilience training in our island communities, and for our young people, is so important,” she said.
“The workshops conducted by Maxi were interactive and had students fully engaged and immersed in resilience and capacity building.”
She was looking forward to hosting Maxi again later this year.
