THE cav­alry has ar­rived.

Gin Gin SES Unit were or­dered to cater for the ar­rival of a large group of emer­gency ser­vices per­son­nel en route to Rock­hamp­ton.

The group came from as far south as Bris­bane, and are on their way to re­lieve cur­rent vol­un­teers in the worst-af­fected ar­eas.

Gin Gin group con­troller Kel­lie Bol­stad said the lo­cal unit could not ven­ture north yet be­cause the Bur­nett River at Duin­gal was still swollen.

There is a chance Gin Gin SES could be sent north if a sec­ond de­ploy­ment is needed.

PHO­TOS: MAX FLEET

HEAD­ING NORTH: Frank (the cook) Den­ner­ley and Jan Uren.

Terry Thomp­son and other vol­un­teers meet at the Gin Gin SES.
