Sup­port fire­fight­ers

Daily Mercury - - NEWS | OPINION | YOUR SAY -

AS AUS­TRALIA ap­proaches sum­mer and bush­fire sea­son, I en­cour­age all to sup­port the fire­fight­ers be­cause we do have the best and most ex­pe­ri­enced fire­fight­ers in the world.

I know of no other coun­try that has such an en­hanced vol­un­tary com­mu­nity, the bush fire­fight­ers, Ru­ral Fire Ser­vice, State Emer­gency Ser­vice, Coast Guard and oth­ers like the Surf Life Savers that put so much time into train­ing and on the job.

The USA does not have these folk, so when Cal­i­for­nia and other states burn, au­thor­i­ties can­not con­trol and ex­tin­guish the fire.

I dips me lid to all vol­un­teers! — Robert S Buick, Moun­tain Creek
