The Hills Strike Team to Holsworthy Range Fire
Glenorie Brigade were paged at 10:30pm to immediately respond with many other brigades from The Hills District to assist with property protection at Sandy Point. The team had to deal with very strong winds and erratic fire behaviour along with a number of other strike teams from as far away as The Hunter, Wollondilly and Illawara areas. Glenorie 1 with a series of 2 crews were assisting for a period of roughly 24 hours. A great job was done by all members. This is a strong reminder that although we are out of the bush fire period it is still very dry with an elevated fire risk remaining. We encourage all residents to always ensure their properties are prepared and Bush Fire Survival Plans are up to date.
