Giro area volunteer fire fighter pleas for better bushfire preparedness

Giro area volunteer fire fighter pleas for better bushfire preparedness

THe Gloucester Advocate interviews VFFA Secretary Greg Godde about his experiences during the Black Summer fires.
Greg says there are 65 kilometre between fire stations at Tibbuc and Nowendoc with nothing but dense bushland in between. For volunteers in the Bretti area, they need to travel away from the fire ground to the shed, then back again.

“It can take 30 to 40 minutes to get from the shed to the fire,” Greg said. “We are pushing to get one built at Giro.”
