Rural Fire fighters to the rescue again
The local rural fire brigade was informed and a well oiled machine burst into action. Within hours, several other brigade trucks were on site. Teams of rural fire brigades worked through the night and then more teams replaced them the next day, to help limit the spread of the fire.
An urban fire truck also assisted in protecting homes at risk, providing reassurance to the families.
Over the following days, the council grader cut trails to back burn off and the council water truck provided easy replenishment of water for the fire trucks.
The SES brought supplies to keep the men and women on site well fed. I am amazed at how well the entire situation was managed and on behalf of all affected parties I would like to pass on a sincere THANK YOU to everyone involved. I believe the rural firies cannot be given enough credit for the job they do.
