27 March 2013   -   DEREEL
St Andrews Tanker 2 was rostered on to Nillumbik Group Long Haul Strike Team 1421, and went to the Dereel fire, south of Ballarat in the early afternoon. There were dozens of fire trucks, together with bulldozers, aircraft, etc., dealing with a large fire that burnt 16 houses and 1,300 hectares. Four of our members, and a colleague from Kangaroo Ground CFA, crewed our truck, returning home at 3 a.m.
