Latest local happenings.

This is the base camp which has been erected at the AFL ground at Swan Reach, the next village to Metung.

You may be wondering why I am posting a photo of a base camp.  This camp is for the fire fighters who are currently fighting the many fires in our local region. We have an app called Vic Emergency which gives you alerts for any emergency within your region.

This gives you an idea of the fires in the Metung region.  Metung is where the binoculars are on the map.  We are in no danger from fires at the moment but we have the issue of poor air quality because of the thick smoke from the fires.

The photo above gives you an idea of what information can be made available to you.

We are so fortunate that there are so many men and women prepared to volunteer to fight these bushfires.  There are still fires out of control as they are in inaccessible areas but the fire fighters are working to contain them.  We are all so grateful for their hard work.

    Hope you are safe. I have seen reports on the tv about the bush fires in Australia. What a disaster. Hope the fires get under control as soon as possible, so that all people can get back to normal life.

    It’s on our radio this morning and the smoke pollution sounds horrendous. Hope you get some rain soon.

  3. Thinking of you all at this time. It looks frightening on the TV.

      We are safe where we are but those close to the fires must be really worried.
