On 4 November, Booral, Stroud and Stroud Roads and Wards River RFS Brigades attended a house fire in Stroud.

The team successfully managed to get the fire under control and extinguished the blaze.

This weekend the Brigade headed off to Woody’s Garden Centre to support the community.

The event had a sausage sizzle and allowed members of the community to pick up a Koala friendly tree.

Most notably, children from the area enjoyed learning about what the local firefighters do, whilst getting to try their hand at the fire hose.

Horse Safety

NSE Rural Fire Service reminds horse owners to make the horses part of their bush fire survival plan.

“Including your animals and livestock in your plans will reduce stress when there’s a fire, allow clearer thinking and improve chances of keeping you and your livestock safe,” a representative from the service said.

Important questions to consider include: Are you able to sufficiently care for your stock for three to seven days, or longer in a prolonged fire emergency? Are your feed/ fodder supplies sufficient, safe and accessible for your livestock? Do you have a safe place on your property for livestock? Are animal houses/ sheds protected and do you have the basic medical supplies and rescue equipment?


Travellers were left frustrated and late after large traffic delays on roads leading to the Pacific Highway on both Friday and Sunday this week.

This is likely a result of the ending of lockdown, prompting travellers to get out and travel to regional areas.

Residents and travellers are reminded to leave plenty of additional time for travel in the upcoming weeks due to traffic delays from out of region travellers.
