RRT Provides Support As Fires Destroy Homes in Mundaring, Perth Hills
Devastating fires have destroyed 52 homes near Mundaring in the Perth hills of Western Australia.
Hundreds of people have been evacuated from the area, and many still have not been allowed to return to their properties.
The Rapid Relief Team have been providing assistance 24 hours a day to displaced community members and emergency personnel since Sunday afternoon, a few hours after the fire started.
Over a thousand meals were served on Tuesday alone, and thousands of bottles of water have been distributed.
The generosity of local businesses and the general public has been overwhelming, with thousands of dollars’ worth of food, drinks, and equipment being donated to assist RRT’s efforts.
The RRT is now operating in three different locations and expect to continue assistance through various activities over the coming days – including providing 200 meals daily to electricity network crew who are replacing around 150 power poles.
Fortunately the fire is now contained and under control, although the status is ‘Watch and Act’.
