Quick response

ON MONDAY, November 7 the Dingo Beach refuse transfer station was set alight - the Gloucester Rural Fire tenders were in attendance and this was a big fire. Drew from Humphries was on his way to Dingo Beach to deliver a load of drinking water and he saw what was happening. Having witnessed bush fires in other states he immediately went and offered assistance. He used his water spray at the back of his truck to assist in controlling the fire.

He was able to fill up the fire tenders on the spot - actually both trucks were filled twice and the remainder of the load of water went in to the tank at the fire station at Dingo Beach. Drew, we commend you for your quick thinking and going that extra step and showing a true community spirit - a big thank you to Drew and Humphries Pty Ltd.
