On March 5th, 2019, multiple 000 calls were received to a grass fire in Plunkett Road, Cedar Creek QLD. As appliances were responding, the incident was upgraded to a car fire, then subsequently a house fire.
The far northeast corner of NSW has certainly seen some action lately with large running bushfires around the Tabulam area. Local crews assisted by strike teams from both NSW and QLD have been working the fires for days. FRNSW Station 514 Banora Point got in touch with us to share their bodycam footage - and it's awesome!
** Warning : Cuteness overload. Whilst out patrolling trails and checking for fire progression, Habana Rural Fire Brigade was cutting up a downed tree when a little head poked up.
This is possibly the most Australian thing you'll see all day. A composite crew of firefighters were working on the North Stradbroke Island bushfire in Queensland when they happened to be filming their arrival and noticed something move above the driver.
Vision from the body-cam worn by one of the officers then captures a terrifying scene as a semi-trailer bursts through the smoke, with zero consideration as to what was on the other side of it.
Well, that's ironic - just days after Ford issued a recall for their Ranger series due to a fire risk, one of them burst into flames in Cairns, QLD. We were sent these videos, which show the local firies turning up and getting to work. Talk about timing...
Watch as crews meet the fire front of the Caloundra fire in QLD. As you can see in the video, things would have gotten pretty bloody hot here! Speaking with a couple of the guys from that station, they said they were able to save every single house along that fireline.
A few great clips of 631A, 631B, 502A and 502B from Queensland Fire & Rescue turning out to incidents.
Brookfield Rural Fire Brigade took delivery of their brand spanking new appliance, Brookfield 51. Speaking with them they mentioned they are looking forward to testing this one offroad, because the last one "was unstoppable!" Good luck, stay safe!
