My blogging regarding fires.
I have now come to the end of what I consider to be a vitally important, possible life-saving part of this blog. I believe I have covered everything that I can.
If you think I have omitted something, please drop me a note. I would be only too happy to cover further information or details as requested.
Some people who have read this blog are aware that I was involved in the fires. To what extent I am hesitant to reveal as I am not a hero. I did what had to be done.
The heroes in the events of “Black Saturday” are those men and women who turned out on the day as both paid and unpaid volunteers and assisted those in need and fought the fires and saved the lives of many people.
This is my way of saying thank-you.
I am sorry that the Royal Commission seems to portray you, the people at the front of the firing line as people who did not know what you were doing. I don’t believe this to be the case. You did what you were ordered to do and had to do to save lives and property.
I have heard first-hand many stories of self-less acts of bravery, which saved the lives of many men, women and children.
If you are a reader of this blog, please leave a note of thanks to the boys and girls in the emergency services, who may have saved a friend, a family member or even your dog. Be it now, or in the future.
And please stay tuned for more posts tomorrow, the day after and the day after that!
