New Recruits get Up-close and Personal with some Live Fire

Our latest intake of new recruits completed their training today (17/2/2013) by participating in a hazard reduction burn on Simpson's Hill in Gilmore. From all accounts they had a great day and they all managed to get their new PPE nice and dirty!. Here's a few shots from the day taken by Michael Joyce and Gary Hooker.

Crews are briefed by Dave Wassall who was the Incident Controller for the day.

The new recruits learnt that fire will burn through green grass!

Some strip lighting in Bravo Sector (which was led by Peter Wulf from Southern)

Good teamwork backing up a buddy

The Northern part of the burn went really well - the residents were very happy to see this bit cleared

Lots of smoke, but everyone had a good time

"Now this is how we approach a drip torch!"

The burn went well and achieved the desired outcome

The crew in GUN10 practice their burn-over procedure
