    Default Victorian Floods

    I have just come back from a 4 day deployment on a strike team with the CFA to help with clean up and recovery after the water has receded. Its unbeleivable the destruction caused. Imagine seeing a boat 10 feet up a tree or caravans piled 3 high, but after seeing it first hand its beleivable.

    The way peoples faces light up when you rock up in a fire truck to help them with anything is just amazing, Its been a real eye opening experience.

    I have come home today exhausted but its worth it just to know that you can brighten someones day, even if you just stop and have a chat.
    I have an opinion and Im not affraid to use it!!!

    Yeah its not as bad as Queensland but we have still copped it. We were up in the Loddon shire working around Dingee, Pyrimid Hill, Bridgewater....... And there is one Road to Kerang now open. The floods have affected alot of farmers down here.
