BPPA Fire Trailer In Action

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Just letting you all know that the Fire Trailer, ahhh, sorry, WATER TRAILER, was used on Sunday the 18th of January as the first response to the shack fire at Billy Goat Flat, below Pine Point.

CFS volunteer & Black Pointer, Neil Brown, (shack 47) and I hooked up the fire trailer after Neil first spotted it and then had it confirmed on his pager.

We were first to arrive with equipment and Neil confirmed that it was an operation of containment to stop the fire, (which appears to have originated from within the shack) from spreading to the surrounding scrub and grass. With the prevailing SE winds, if it crossed the road at Billy Goat Flat, it would have raced up the grass hill and into the scrub that exists to the north of Piney.

Read more and see the pictures!
