Cudlee Creek Fire, Day 6

SAVEM has a Control desk in the Gumeracha Hall. We’ve installed our banner, making our presence easily identifiable. Dr Claire has been Operations Manager on Days 5 & 6 – Christmas Day and Boxing Day. SAVEM has one team out today with the capability of sending another if required. We are likely to field 1 or 2 teams tomorrow, then stand down for the heat and wind over the weekend. At this point post-fire, wildife are starting to emerge from their hiding places and trees. We are busy today with koala and kangaroo patients, phoned in by landowners and members of the public. Thanks again to Cleland Wildlife Park for their assistance.
