THEY might have a combined age of 151 but John Johnstone and Elizabeth Delbridge are the front line of Karuah's fire-fighting force.
The pair, who are the town's sole rural fire service volunteers, will join representatives from the Lower Hunter Rural Fire service for an annual fire demonstration day on Saturday.
The day will commence at 9am outside the Karuah shed.
According to Mr Johnstone the day will aim to educate members of the public about how to best deal with fires in an emergency situation.
"This is a great step in the right direction," Mr Johnston said.
"Their are a lot of cases where a fire can occur," he said, but reminded people of common misconceptions surrounding the best way to deal with them.
In a lot of instances he said the most dangerous method of extinguishing an electrical blaze is to apply water.
"In a lot of cases you should never use water," he said.
He said a dry chemical or powder should be used.
Apart from the day serving as an education seminar Mr Johnstone also hopes it will encourage some younger hands in the community to volunteer their time for the service.
The demonstration will begin at 9am and everyone is welcome.
