This photo was taken at the Abermain fire, 13/12/2016. I was photographing the head of the fire when a section of tree caught fire opposite my camera position; this little fella came out with his back singed. I picked him up and put him down when BFO4 (Matt Anderson) covered his singed fur with water. He tells me that the little ring tail was OK. We checked his pads and toes and they looked OK!


This photo was taken at the fires in Kurri Kurri, NSW in January 2017. A grandmother takes her grandchildren children to safety as the fire approaches.

I founded Flashover to promote Australian Firefighting. I've been a volunteer and a paid firefighter but now I spend my time chasing up leads, promoting good mental health and making the occasional Grumpy Firecom comic!
