Buddhist Monastery saved
Great work by waterbombing aircraft and ground crews in early January 2020 saved the Sunnataram Forest Monastery near Penrose in the southern highlands, NSW.
A number of outbuildings were unfortunately lost however the main Pagoda was successfully protected.
Imagine there was a fire in your area. Which buildings would want to ensure were protected?
Property protection is a part of firefighting.
The Erickson S-64 Air-Crane has gained fame in Australia as a highly visible and valuable tool in the firefighting effort since 2000.
