Emergency Response – Runaway bush fire

We recently received a phone call from one of our members reporting a major fire in her street. The fire appeared to be spreading to someone’s property and house as well. To make matters worse, there was strong winds in the area exacerbating the situation.

The closest fire department was swiftly dispatched to deal with the fire. There was a real risk of this getting out of hand and engulfing the nearby home. The fire crew arrived on scene within minutes and quickly brought the fire under control, successfully extinguishing it before any property damage occurred.

Thanks to the quick thinking actions of concerned neighbours and the swift action of the fire department a crisis was averted.
