Some readers may remember that 12 months ago we had a serious fire incident only metres from our home. A National Parks hazard reduction got away, jumping containment lines and raced towards us via the Burralow and Wool Wash Creek.
I was all very serious stuff, with helicopters water bombing and the Rural Fire Service Tankers lined up in the street. To our relief the co-ordintationa and efforts of the teams prevented what could have been are catastrophe from occuring.
Last weekend, the various brigades got together for their annual competition to see who were the outstanding performers and who had the best presented truck.
I am pleased to say that, our brigade won- Grose Vale, and came 2nd for best presented truck.
It was quite exciting to watch the younger guys roll out hoses, connect and put out a fire, then roll up and store. There were various field events and the overall winner was decided based on a total aggregate time.
It was a real community event and a vital one for our safety.
