NACRA members have provided $1000 towards essential fire equipement for the local fire brigade as a donatin of thanks from the community for the hard work so far and what looks to be a continuing battle over summer. Jim Parnell President and Lyn Mckee Treasurer presented the donation to John Aaltonen.
Our brigade members have been very busy volunteering with other brigades over the last 2 months in protecting property and working to reduce the fires, Our brigade has 10 members and is looking for volunteers. In November they completed six 12 hour sifts and this month five 12 hour shifts, in addition they have attended to local call outs for fires and accidents.
John said he appreciated the donation which is a first from NACRA.
Funds have been raised by NACRA through the recycled bottes and containers gathered once a month by Lyn Mckee and increased numbers of members.
