Emer­gency ser­vices de­serve sup­port

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News -

NO ONE can over­es­ti­mate the good work emer­gency ser­vices do for our re­gion.

Emer­gency ser­vices vol­un­teers de­serve recog­ni­tion be­cause it is their time, ded­i­ca­tion and safety they are will­ing to put on the line.

Fire­fight­ing vol­un­teers have been prepar­ing for the bush­fire sea­son with a hands-on as­sess­ment of ru­ral prop­er­ties’ bush­fire pre­pared­ness last Satur­day and a meet-and-greet with the pub­lic this Satur­day.

Year af­ter year, these vol­un­teers and ev­ery­one in­volved in bush­fire preven­tion, urge peo­ple to pre­pare their prop­er­ties for the up­com­ing bush­fire sea­son.

Whether it is set­ting up a bush­fire ac­tion plan or clean­ing out your gut­ters of leaf de­bris, any ac­tion could po­ten­tially make a dif­fer­ence.

Vol­un­teers put in so much ef­fort to keep the com­mu­nity safe, the least res­i­dents can do is pre­pare their homes for the bush­fire sea­son.
