RRT Help Save School and Mt Victoria Community

2013 was the hottest year on record for Eastern Australia.  Halfway through spring with little or no rain forecast in the near future, the region’s worst fears were realised. An Army exercise involving explosives accidently ignited bushland north of Lithgow, on the western side of the Blue Mountains, New South Wales. With high winds whipping flames into an inferno, power lines arced, spreading the fire.  Over 200 homes were razed to the ground.

    Agreed. Using artist names undermine the sincerity of the blogs. These are lives in danger that are being saved. We should pay respect to that and not make a joke of it. Thank you.

    Wow- what is UP with commenters using celebrity names?!? You wouldn’t be trying to draw attention to yourself instead of the post would you?? I hope not.

    Congrats RRT for your incredible compassion!!! I’m sure Barker College is forever thankful as well as their students and staff. You guys are the best 🙂

      Ya exactly. How about you just put your real name instead. We all know it’s not actually Katy, Taylor, and Selena. But great job RRT!! Really appreciate you effort and work done!

    Make sure you check out the ‘Read More Here’ link – i nearly missed it (silly me!!!). Can you make it a bit more prominent button?

      Thanks for noting that – I had missed it too and wondered why the latest posts were so short! It’s hard for us to imagine with the winter we’ve just gone through that it actually can be above zero! Having been to Lithgow and the area; this would have been extremely scary for those involved as it sits in a basin surrounded by hills. Good thing the RRT is there to help keep the firefighters sustained. Well done RRT, firies and other EMS units – keep up the great work!

    What – do you have your own fire trucks and everything?? What a heaven-sent provision you are.
    Thinking of all those that have been devastated by the recent fires.
