For months, our emergency services organisations have worked tirelessly , dealing with the devastating bushfires, the worst we've seen in years.

These men & women put their own lives at risk, to keep us safe.

Between the efforts of my husband, Steve, who stayed to defend, and the two fire trucks that turned up at just the right time, I have no doubt that is why I still have my home today! Thank you!
Sharon from SURF BEACH
Young Nathan, a firey from Quaama, saved the Paulin's grandkids, driving through fire in a private car - getting them out of burning house. The children definitely would have died if Nathan hadn't risked his life for them.
Spud from Cobargo
We have never experienced anything as frightening as the fires on the South Coast in November, December and January. All of these Firefighters are Heroes as are all the Volunteers behind the scenes. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Janice from Nowra
I have my daughter and her husband plus 3 of their 4 kids in the Darkes Forest Brigade, they came down to assist in our fires. They stayed with me. My son is in the Batemans Bay Brigade and also fought the fires around our beautiful towns. Selfless acts from all our firies. All I can say is thank you and please walk away if there is danger, your life is also precious.
Sue from North Batemans Bay

Kathy from Nowra
Thank you very much for protecting us during the worst bushfire season I’ve experienced so far. When I came to Australia 7 years ago I’ve never thought that one day I’ll be in the middle of the hell even I wasn’t directly impacted by the fire. My words cannot express gratitude and respect for you. THANK YOU!
Renata from Cambewarra
It is a known saying, when trouble comes, heroes rise. Thankyou to all those heroes assisting people and animals in dire circumstances. You have shown selflessness beyond what could ever be expected or achieved, and set a high standard for humanity, a moral compass for us all. A special mention to the Greenwell Point RFS and (Captain) Sam out there everyday in those monster fires, by actions saying to people in trouble “We’re here, we’ve got you, you’re safe”. How do you ever repay for this type of help. There are no words exceptional enough in gratitude for the gift of assistance that was given by those Australian and oversea’s heroes who stepped up. Many had thought Australian culture was losing its sense of morals and humanity but these fighters for us, (Our Fire Defenders) , protected us, our homes, our animals without fuss and with courage, and proved goodness and kindness are still great Australian strengths. This nation is humbled, and owes so much.
Jan from Nowra
