Strike Team ST0804 gathered at the South Eastern Training Ground ready to depart to the NSW fires.

Crews from Langwarrin, Kernot/Grantville, Carrum Downs, Devon Meadows, Tynong, Maryknoll and Casey Group FOV along with Dandenong Car as the Team Leader vehicle rallied together at the training ground ready for the trip.

Their first destination is the training ground at Wangaratta where they will meet up with the District 13 strike team before heading up together in to New South Wales.


District 8 Operations Manager Trevor Owen said it was great that the Outer Metro Region has the surge capacity to be able to go on and support our country crews and interstate firefighters in their time of need.

Update: They have now formed part of Taskforce 1 and they are heading to Tarcutta in NSW and are expected to be away for at least 3 days.
