Bucketty, Laguna, Millfield and Wollombi all fielded a tanker and crew to the event accompanied by Group 8 Captain Alan and Support Captain Jordis. We all enjoyed a full-on training day dealing with a whole gamut of burning cars, burning structures, injured dummies, injured real-people and a rather nice lunch provided by Lizzie from Support.
The last scenario of the afternoon threw all four Brigades and tankers into a multitude of structure fires in all the buildings at the same time which really demonstrated the excellent team work and comradeship we enjoy between us. Thanks to all for a most excellent day out and hope to see some of you on an upcoming VF Course.

Bucketty crews responded quickly late on Friday evening to a vehicle alight dumped off George Downes Drive. Excellent work by our firefighters who safely dealt with the dual-tank LPG ute that was fully involved by the time we arrived. Thanks also to Wollombi 1 Bravo for responding and providing water supply for the extended cooling required on the vehicle. Great work all and home to bed :)
