Whilst we are talking bushfires, the CFS have a fantastic website called CFS: Current Incidents which allows you to track the fires and range of callouts that the CFS are currently involved with.
The website lists the current callouts of CFS units across the country and can be narrowed down by state and region. It shows the current status of each callout, and allows you to track a fire’s progress or how long until a road collision will be cleared. I was amazed to see how many callouts the CFS respond to and the range of different things, not only fires and road crashes, but trees down, loose animals and more.
It’s fascinating to see how many grassfires are caused by lightning storms in rural areas as well. The CFS certainly are unsung heroes!
