AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

CFA Sorrento

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Entrance to the Sorrento, Mornington Peninsula branch of the CFA.
The Country Fire Authority has now evolved to become one of the world's largest volunteer based emergency management organisations.
There are currently more than 1,200 CFA brigades servicing the operational areas throughout regional Victoria (except state forests and parks) and outer metropolitan Melbourne.
See the CFA website for more details.

Red cars in the back adds nicely to the sign. Did you ring the bell? Happy RT!

In your country at this time, I imagine the CFA is probably the most important organization. God bless those who volunteer and endanger themselves to help others.

Happy Tuesday,
