Dan Tehan MP, Member for Wannon and Malcolm Turnbull MP, Prime Minister of Australia thanked our volunteers who attended and assisted with the Cobden, Gazette, Hawkesdale and Terang fires  (St Patricks Day Fires).  Dan and Prime Minister Turnbull toured with local CFA members over the southern sites and also met with the first responders from the Cobden Fire Station, they then travelled to the Cobden Emergency Relief Centre to catch up with volunteers and community members.

It was an inspiring afternoon, showing our community at its best in the face of adversity you are all resilient, caring and supportive.  As Prime Minister Turnbull said, ” when Nature is at her worst, Australian’s are at their best.”
