This is a kind message, but what it also says to us is these people are very well prepared. They left early - early enough to leave a sign. These people get it. Plan ahead. 5 minute fire chat.

dfes.wa.gov.au/firechat/Check out this useful, but lovely, sign left for the firies in NSW! πŸš’πŸ‘

Rachel, from northern NSW, left this note on a sign at the front of her evacuated property. Here's some of what it said:

β€’ "Hello AMAZING firies!
β€’ "5000 litres in concrete tank next to shed... maybe 2000 litres in house tanks below vege garden...
β€’ "Back door to house is open. Help yourself to food/drinks in fridge...
β€’ "THANK YOU - you guys rock our world!"

Firefighters recommend people erect signage that alerts them to whether you have a static water supply on your property, which might include a dam, creek, or swimming pool.

We hate sharing news like this. We hope our comrades on the east coast come out of this intact. So far in these fires there have been over 30 firefighter injuries, a reminder that what we do is dangerous, hard work.Image attachment
