Fire­fight­ers do their bit to pro­tect com­mu­nity

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT - SHIRLEY WAY

OUR lo­cal fire­fight­ers are work­ing hard.

Dur­ing Mon­day night’s train­ing ses­sion, they com­pleted a con­trolled haz­ard re­duc­tion burn in Gayn­dah to re­duce dan­ger to houses.

Cap­tain Ron Mitchell said the fire was eas­ier to con­trol at night and the aux­il­iary fire­fight­ers were also work­ing in the day.

This is my pub­lic ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the work these crews do to keep us safe.

And their work has also been recog­nised by As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner John Bol­ger, who gave awards to those who helped to con­tain and put out the Mun­dub­bera pig­gery fire last year.

Thank you!
