Cyclone Marcia - Association support to Brigade Volunteers in need
Thursday, 19 Feb 2015
With Cyclone Marcia due to impact the Queensland coast tomorrow morning, the thoughts of all of the Association Representatives and Staff are with the Rural Fire Brigade Volunteers and their families.
If you, as a Rural Fire Brigade Volunteer find yourself in need of support, or become aware of a brigade member who is impacted by this cyclone, please do not hesitate to contact your Association for support. (Link to reps)
Severe flooding events previously across Queensland has shown that Rural Fire Brigades are able to activate to not only support their immediate communities, but are able to project that support across Group, District and Regional boundaries to help fellow Queenslanders. With 1,000 4wd appliances, 35,000 volunteers, pumps, chainsaws and an established radio communication network, the Rural Fire Service in Queensland has shown itself to be a Volunteer organisation that truly covers 100% of the state.
Good Luck and Stay Safe
