    Default Fire Fighting in the blue mountains

    Hi all. I'm just one if the thousands of volunteers involved with the fire effort.

    I have a 3 day stint in Lithgow. Currently working bell line rd. tonight will be my second day. Out if area crews are only allowed to do 3 days at a go. Likely will go home after this and come back for another 3 days.

    Not sure if there are any members in Lithgow but if someone were interested in putting up 3 firefighters tomorrow our my. Few would live a good sleep.

    We have no transport. Even if it were only me. It trying to look out for my truck crew.

    Trying to post some pics too but iPhone app is less than Perfect.

    Our current accommodation is a huge room with 200 beds or more. It is not dark and there is lots of stuff going on though they are trying to be considerate of our needs.

    Hi Dave, You might like to take a look at stayme.com.au. People are listing their free rooms for fire victims so you might have some luck there. You can also advertise on there for free (or so it seems). Take care out there. You firies do an amazing job.

    thanks. I'll check that out.

    New crew just came in with no idea of us trying to sleep and made such a raucous. I've given up trying to sleep
    this was us flying out of southern NSW
