The Hills Strike Team to Holswor­thy Range Fire

Glenorie Brigade were paged at 10:30pm to im­me­di­ately re­spond with many other brigades from The Hills District to as­sist with prop­erty pro­tec­tion at Sandy Point. The team had to deal with very strong winds and er­ratic fire be­hav­iour along with a num­ber of other strike teams from as far away as The Hunter, Wol­londilly and Illawara ar­eas. Glenorie 1 with a series of 2 crews were as­sist­ing for a pe­riod of roughly 24 hours. A great job was done by all mem­bers. This is a strong re­minder that al­though we are out of the bush fire pe­riod it is still very dry with an el­e­vated fire risk re­main­ing. We en­cour­age all res­i­dents to al­ways en­sure their prop­er­ties are pre­pared and Bush Fire Sur­vival Plans are up to date.
