Australian Firefighters Flood Town Save
Australian Firefighters Flood Town Save

Earlier this week members of the Country Fire Authority (CFA) in Victoria, Australia, helped save the north-west wheat-belt town of Warracknabeal from being devastated by floods. Currently one quarter of Victoria is affected by floodwaters. Fill over 20,000 sandbags, add a few hundred volunteers including local CFA members, a huge dose of community spirit and a whole lot of hard work and you have the township of Warracknabeal pulling together as it prepares to battle the flooding of nearby Yarriambiak Creek. On Tuesday, it was all hands on deck as members of the Warracknabeal Urban Fire Brigade (WUFB) joined their colleagues from the State Emergency Service (SES), Red Cross and Victoria Police, along with local service groups and Yarriambiak Shire staff to prepare their small town for the predicted floods.
