Rural’s 4.4 gets a workout

The Brigade’s 4.4 tanker was in action Thursday assisting Wilyabrup in putting out a burn that threatened escaping into the coastal bush.

Steveo, Emma and Tony joined the Wilyabrup captain and the Busselton 12.2 water tanker in dousing the fire. The 12.2 fed the 4.4 while Emma, on the cannon, and Tony and Steveo on the back hoses extinguished the fire in less than an hour. They were also treated to some spectacular views down the coast.
