Fill over 20,000 sandbags, add a few hundred volunteers including local CFA members, a huge dose of community spirit and a whole lot of hard work and you have the township of Warracknabeal pulling together as it prepares to battle the flooding of nearby Yarriambiak Creek.

 

Tuesday it was all hands on deck as members of the Warracknabeal Urban Fire Brigade (WUFB) joined their colleagues from the State Emergency Service (SES), Red Cross and Victoria Police, along with local service groups and Yarriambiak Shire staff to prepare their small town for the predicted floods.

I was very sad to see how the floods covered a large areas equals FRANCE & GERMANY together and have destroyed lives and properties but at the other hand when i saw how the people come together as one to help each other it was amazing !!!.

Alison, the teamwork across the state has been outstanding! I'm the Deputy Controller of my local SES and spent most of last week as the night shift Divisional Commander running out of a local CFA HQ.

At it's peak, we had up to 20 CFA/SES crews working day and night responding to floods and tree jobs.

A great effort by all...
