  • That’s how we started 2013. We live on a Peninsula and the fire had us cut off from everything. No power, no running water, food supplies shipped in across the water. Fire started on Friday, we managed to get on a convoy out of here. We didn’t lose anything, so we were lucky. But it was pretty scarey having a fire heading toward us with no escape, except across the water. Got worse when another fire popped up on the other side of us

  • Our friends house was saved but everything else is charred. He had just bought his house 9mths ago. We had seen him the day of the fire as he had to “come to town” but was worried as the looming catastrophic weather conditions. We were talking of bushfires & his safety plan. 1989 was when a fire was last was in his area & then
    this happened.The CFS were brilliant & real saviours.Thank goodness the heavens have finally opened

  • i saw a video of a guy trying to save his mother’s house and he was running around with a hose. the video was only 4mins long but i could not believe how quick those flames moved! it burned across a huge paddock so fast. i don’t think that people realise this and become complacent but obviously people like your husband do as they are the ones who have to deal with the aftermath.

  • Good advice. My brother is a CFA volunteer and we dread him being called out, although we are proud of him for what he does.

  • It is such a terrible and heartbreaking situation.. Living in a rural area I always stay prepared but know that devastation would follow if I had to face this… Thoughts are with all those who have been affected and my gratitude to the men and women who put their life and health on the line
