This video is fantastic – we implore you to take a minute to sit and watch it. Regardless if you are paid or volunteer, the message remains the same. It talks about lifestyle, warning signs, the fear of asking for help and then progressing through the other side and getting better.
This video deserves to be shared throughout the services in Australia. Well done.
Across the ditch, Rural and Urban fire services are coming together under one name, Fire and Emergency New Zealand. The new name brings with it a change of roles, responsibilities and powers but on top of that – a new logo!
Some great photos in this one! “We located a truck overturned on the roadway, truck fully involved in fire – which was exacerbated by ruptured diesel tanks. Thermal imaging was showing temperatures in excess of 400 degrees at the front of the truck.”
Angelo Tsirekas was on scene in the ACT for a building fire which brought a whole host of appliances from around the area. CAFS, HAZMATS and ambo’s – oh my!
We had a chat with the guys from Nar Nar Goon CFA station about their role in the local community. They are a volunteer station and run a “pumper/tanker” which is an old tanker retrofitted to act as a pumper and a rescue appliance. They attend around 300+ calls a year, half of that being rescue incidents.
Tawa VFB were contacted and asked if they could bring one of their fire appliances to a “family day” for James as he likes diggers and trucks, instead they brought all three. Thanks to the combined efforts of a whole host of people, they were able to bring a little bit of Disneyland to James!
