Residents wanted for community fire units
The Bays Community Group is calling for residents to join one of the Bays community fire units in time for the fire season.
"We would have all witnessed on television the damage and destruction that the fires have recently caused in California," said group president Ms Cathy Gleeson.
"This is another reminder to have your home and surrounding property prepared this fire season.
"If you require advice on how to do this please talk to the crew at our own Bays Rural Fire Service in Wattle St.
"There are four community fire units in the Bays.
"You may have noticed one of their red trailers in your street," Ms Gleeson said.
"There are two trailers in Horsfield Rd, one on Woy Woy Rd near Banyo Cres and one in Taylor St.
"There are no units in Phegans Bay.
"All of the existing units could do with an influx of new recruits, some have a good base of existing members, but they are getting older.
"Some of the units could do with new recruits to top up their numbers.
"Phegans Bay could benefit from the formation of its own unit so that there is a presence in their area in case of a fire," Ms Gleeson said.
Anyone interested in joining one of the Bays Community Fire Units should contact The Bays Community Group for more information.
