Real need to be vigilant

Hi all. It seems that the hot weather has been making itself felt, with some strong winds also creating havoc.

The surrounding area has dried out dramatically over the last week or two and our local Two Wells brigade has been kept busy with call outs, 15 over the past 10 days.

These include several car fires, some small burn offs and an inside structure fire, as well as a large spill (about 500 metres) on Port Wakefield road the brigade helped to clean up.

Four of our members attended a large hay shed fire, spending nearly nine hours there. There was also a call out to assist the ambulance service.

• Our local captain, Adam Harris, has gone over to NSW on a five day deployment, along with other SA CFS volunteers, to help fight the fires over there.

Let’s all take heed and remain vigilant, helping us to keep our community and surrounding district safe.

You can check with the CFS home page on the internet or contact the council for fire ban days and information.

As ever, we can be found down Wells Rd, opposite the hotel. We train Monday nights from 7:30pm, with cadets training fortnightly from 6pm till 7.30pm.
