Local Port Stephens RFS teams have been travelling far and wide to assist with the bushfire crisis in Australia.
Locally the RFS has spent over a week working on extinguishing the fires near Eucalyptus Drive at One Mile Beach.
Julia Redlich of the Fingal Bay Probus Club told News Of The Area, “It was timely and topical when the Fingal Bay Probus Club recently welcomed a speaker from the Fingal Bay Rural Fire Brigade.
Curtis Nunn, like many of his family, was proof positive of the dedication of volunteers.
“He arrived, having just finished a spell of duty; he’d had no time to change, and only stopped for a but a quick
coffee before sharing his experience in advising about readying our homes and families for bushfires, which have so recently dominated our country.
He spoke about how to prepare, act and survive was comprehensively covered and involved many more questions from his listeners afterwards.
Curtis received warm thanks for his time, as well as donations.
He also carried off two baskets of goodies to benefit of the wonderful volunteers who make up our local Rural Fire Brigade.
