Brigades tasked to bushfires

On September 24, the Kundle Moto Rural Fire Brigade at 12.32hrs were paged to a fire call.

The crew were dispatched initially to Aerodrome Road, Nabiac to investigate smoke.

Once the location was determined and units could be tasked, they were redeployed for the Comboyne fires and then redirected to Mt George, where a fire was threatening a number of properties.

Crews worked until about 20.45hrs before being released. 

On their way home, they assisted Tinonee Rural Fire Brigade and Old Bar Rural Fire Brigade with a car fire at the tip, before returning to the station.

At the Mt George Fire, as well as Kundle Moto brigade there were other brigades also assisting. Diamond Beach, Taree, Pacific Palms etc. as well as a group officer.
