During the month of October several fires were burning across NSW. One of these fires was the Lake Burragarang Fire in the Wollondilly shire.

The Cumberland Zone assisted with 1 strike team & 6 Communications members.

Our Communications members Damian Karwaj, Morag Conroy, Kay Gordon, Karen Back, Micheal Adams & Chris Batten attended 3 - 12hr commitments over 3 days, to assist with communications for the fire which had been declared a Section 44 under the Rural Fires Act 1997.(For more information on what a Section 44 is,Click HERE)

The crews were working with the IMT (Incident Management Team) at the Wollondilly Fire Control Centre assisting with Communications, Logistics, Planning & Operations.

Wollondilly RFZ were also assisted by other Rural Fire Service communication crews from Baulkham Hills, Sutherland & Blue Mountains.
