ACT continues to support firefighting efforts in NSW fire

Another strike team of ACT firefighters will tomorrow morning leave the ACT to assist their NSW Rural Fire Service colleagues in firefighting efforts north of Cooma.

The three day deployment for the 14 firefighters from the ACT Rural Fire Service, made up of volunteers and personnel from the Parks Brigade, will replace the strike team that left on Monday morning.

Firefighters will continue to reinforce containment lines with hand tools and patrol existing control lines.
