On November 4, RFS brigades from Booral, Stroud and Stroud Roads and Wards River witnessed a house fire in Stroud.

The team successfully brought the blaze under control and extinguished the blaze.

This weekend, the brigade visited Woody’s Garden Center to support the community.

The event had a sausage sizzle and allowed community members to pick up a koala friendly tree.

In particular, the children in the area enjoyed learning what the local firefighters do, while trying their hand at the fire hose.

Horse safety

The NSE Rural Fire Department reminds horse owners to include horses in their bushfire survival plan.

“Including your animals and livestock in your plans will reduce stress in the event of a fire, allow clearer thinking and improve the chances of protecting you and your livestock,” said a representative from the service.

Important questions to consider are: Are you able to take sufficient care of your inventory for three to seven days, or longer in the event of a prolonged fire? Are your animal feed supplies sufficient, safe and accessible for your livestock? Do you have a secure area on your property for livestock? Are animal facilities / shelters protected and do you have basic medical supplies and rescue equipment?

Traffic

Travelers remained frustrated and late after significant traffic delays on the roads leading to the Pacific Highway on Friday and Sunday this week.

This is likely due to the end of the lockdown, prompting travelers to exit and visit regional areas.

Residents and travelers are reminded to allow sufficient extra time to travel in the coming weeks due to delays in the movement of travelers out of the region.
