I've had a team of 6 in the field for 3 days triaging and treating burnt stock. All have now been dealt with, and we are onto finding agistment, food, and water for affected properties. It has been a massive community effort. The farming fifteeners have all been involved in the fire fighting, but their properties have not been burnt. We very proud of the job Victoria has done representing our community and coordinating an overall response. Tom as chief fire officer has been at the fore front, as has the Wallaces, Wellsy, Matt, & Ashleigh. I'm sure some of the others such as Schmedje and Blumann will have been fighting also but I haven't caught up yet. All of the fleet have been involved in some way. Many fifteeners have contacted me directly offering thoughts and support, and it is greatly appreciated. So far there is no loss of boats. Cheers, Swanny.
