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!!!
