You may have seen a couple of groups of prisoners around the area. At present they are helping to get the roads back into a safe condition but they are also available to assist with clean up of properties damaged by the fire. They have all their own equipment including chain saws etc.
These guys are hand picked and well supervised. Those of us who have had contact with them have been very impressed with their willingness to help and their general demeanour. They even offered to clean the tables and the barbecues after the breakfast yesterday!
If you would like them to help you, leave a comment here OR phone 9739 1484 OR speak to one of the supervisors when you see them out and about.
