It was a slow start to the month but was quickly followed by a medical. Our next callout was an MVA with a family ending up in the river, luckily they escaped the car unharmed.
The month rounded off with two more medical callouts. The final one we were at Onewhero conducting a shared medical training evening when their siren activated. They advise it’s for The Port and off they race. We’re quick on their tail, and see the Tuakau brigade coming in as well. What a school camp story! Nothing life-threatening, thank goodness, but three fire crews and a ride in the Westpac helicopter.
Everyone knows how hot and dry it’s been, especially those on tank water! With such an early start to the summer, let’s all work together to ensure we get our permits, and that if we need to have a fire, it’s well managed and kept in control.
