We all would be well aware of the current fire situation around the country. We seem to be behind here in Vic, as in we haven't had the severe fire activity yet that Qld and NSW has had. But it is only a matter of time as Vic is deemed to be the highest risk area for fires in Aus...unless things have changed. I have noticed some comments on threads regarding fires so thought I would start this new thread. Looking at the weather here in Vic, as we head toward the weekend, the fire weather is worsening. I am a vol with the CFA but in a non-operational role. I may find myself on standby in Incident Control Centres on 'bad days'. Nowhere near as bad as the guys who have to work out in the heat when the fire starts. Does anyone else here have an involvement with any service that helps out? Or is anyone here at risk of having their property impacted by fire? As I write this I just received an 'alert' on Vic Emergency for a grass fire in nearby Mooroopna! cheers Team Bender Reminding everyone not to do anything stupid this summer!
