My fiery brothers

Me in my brothers’ fireman gear

Did you know my brothers are in the bushfire brigade? Actually my biggest brother Reed – he is 16 – is the crew captain in the cadet unit at their school. And now Pat – he is nearly 14 – has joined up too.

A few weekends ago we went to see them do their exercises at a field day. They had to rake the leaves, then use the hoses, and carry and dummy on a stretcher. By the way this kind of dummy isn’t one you suck in your mouth. it’s kind of a doll that looks like a human.

Do you like me wearing their gear on our deck? The bright colours help people see them and the helmet is in case a tree falls on your head!
