Firefighters are bloody amazing


As many people would have seen on the news there are lots and lots of fires around New South Wales and yes I am in New South Wales but no the fires are not real close to  me the closes was maybe 45-60 minutes away from me. 

I do feel for all those who have been effected by the fires and who have lost their homes and pets and such.  I know I am lucky to not be affected this is partly due to the fact that I don't live near bushland well not that close to bushland, hang on a minute there is bushland only 10-15 minute walk from me bloody hell what am I talking about not living near bushland. 

I saw on out local tv channels Facebook page that a 14-year-old boy has been charged with starting a fire at Rutherford yesterday apparently about 1.15pm a fire was discovered in vegetation near a tennis club on the New England Highway.

Firefighters extinguished the blaze, but not before it burned 200 square metres around the club including established trees and fencing.

I don't get why people start fires, young children don't always know what will happen if they start a fire but at 14 this kid should had know and if he hasn't been living under a rock or in cave he would have seen about the fires on telly. 

When I would see about the fires I would think of my cousin Noel, who is a firefighter, all firefighters are bloody amazing people they are true heroes as they willingly and knowingly put their lives at risk to help other.

  3. Dreadful are the fires with such a wide front. I feel for everyone effected, the smoke would you believe is coming over the sea to Tasmania at times.
    Firefighters, well those that get paid, it's their job which they do knowing the consequences along with the volunteers. They all do a good job and get so exhausted for it's a big battle for them all.

    1. It is not a job I would be able to do which is why I find them amazing. I read this morning that there are around 100 fires still burning.

  4. Hey, I like the picture with straight hair even if you don't look happy! Those fires are so scary. We get our share of them here in the US and without those brave firefighters we would have many more fatalities. Good post

  6. I agree that firefighters are amazing. I have been following the news of the fires there. Very sad. There has been so much destruction in both of our countries dealing with wild fires. Tragic

    2. That is very sad about the fires. I agree the fire fighters are heroes, risking their lives everyday. We have a wilderness area called the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. Sometimes fires will start up there and can spread easily with all the trees. It's sad when they are intentionally set and yes, a 14 year old should know better.
