A busy day out for all

Multiple fires around our local area yesterday with Bucketty 1 & 9 responding first to Wollombi to the Pony Club fire and then Bucketty 1 heading over to Blaxland Arm Road to another fire threatening property there.

Great work by all crews on the various fires around the place with Bucketty 9 & crew out on Pony Club in some pretty extreme country and Bucketty 1 & Crew on Blaxlands Fire along with our Group Captains.

Some truly excellent firefighting ensued and great to work side by side with our brothers and sisters from Group 8 as well as friends from Louth Park and Pokolbin Brigades. Plus big-ups to Ben from Bucketty Brigade on B1 for his first wildfire - well done all, top work.
