Moyhu Group sharp and ready to go
The Moyhu Group is ready for another fire season after its annual group exercise on the weekend of 23-24 November. Story courtesy of the Wangaratta Chronicle.
Seven brigades from around the King Valley gathered in the Bobinawarrah area to conduct a round robin series of exercises to sharpen their skills.
They worked on controlling firebreaks, fires from lightning strikes, drafting water from a static supply, using radios, and protecting themselves in fire trucks during a burn over.
Group officer Ron Moorhead led the exercises and said they were a valuable tool for members leading into summer.
The Moyhu group was busy with fires last summer and Mr Moorehead said there is potential for another dangerous fire season.
