Congratulations Sparky.Ken Bowerman is a tireless volunteer and will do anything he can to lend a hand to those who need it, including organising fundraisers, training days and volunteering to talk to local schools about the role of the RFS.

Firefighters see a significant increase in house fires in the colder months due to poorly placed heaters, blocked chimneys, and disposing of hot ashes incorrectly just to name a few.

We also see a marked increase in car accidents as visibility decreases and snow/ice start to form on our roads.

Please be safe this winter.

NSW Rural Fire Service
Check your smoke alarm tonight! With temperatures set to dive across the weekend and snow on the way, heaters & fire places will get a workout. Temps as low as -9 likely on Monday near Emmaville in northern NSW. Remember a working smoke alarm saves lives.

RFS crews are beginning to depart the scene, with ACT and NSW Fire Rescue units delaying earlier. Road will hopefully be fully open shortly.

Police are opening South bound lane (towards Cooma) If traveling through the area reduce your speed and obey all directions given by emergency services.

Monaro Highway is closed in both directions. Avoid the area.

Our brigades respond to an average of 4 car accidents in the first 2 weeks of June every year along the Alpine Way and Monaro Hwy. Normally these are on the long weekend.

Police and Paramedics will go to even more than that.

Please, slow down. Make it home safe.How's your eyesight?

Notice
Drivers on Cooma to Berridale Rd be aware of the mob of cattle grazing the roadsides.
Please slow down when you come across the cattle.
Not only are these cattle getting feed in the dry times but are doing a fantastic fire hazard reduction along the road sides.
Looking at areas where they have already travelled certainly shows how much grass fuel loads have been removed.
So please have a bit of patience when you encounter the mob

Sad to see a cow hit on Sunday night. Hopefully more people slow down more.

The one that ran in front of my car sure tasted great 👍

Ive seen these cows so many times now, last year and this year, on my trips to/from the coast. There’s plenty of signage to warn you and it’s hard not to slow down when there’s a big cow or 7 stopped in the middle of the road haha!! Have patience people 😊

What a great sight, wonderful country feels like you are on top of the world. Hope drivers show consideration.

Good to see the long paddock used for something useful.

Least we could do god these precious creatures.

Great to see but do hope the cattle signs are out, it's hard when it's. A 100k zone and you have no idea they are about ..take care

will they still be there come this weekend? silly season is here. Alot if people drive like the snow will melt before they arrive. Could be concerning for the stock and drovers

Lauren Inglis how cute were they!!!

Lovely to see!

Veronica the cows from across your house on the weekend lol

Chloe Carlisle can we go see the cows

There gazing in what they call the long paddock so hope people slow down

Michelle Rutishauser were we talking about this ?

Love seeing the cattle, 4 year old thinks it’s great. Nothing wrong to slow down

Drive safely Who owns the cattle?

Gotta love highways and roads that are official stock runs.

We got the same on hay. plain

Loved it - when we drove through! 💕

Drove thru, they were so cute.

Great to see

Banjo Patterson just the heads up mate be careful out there

What a great idea.

Claire Cowie. Lets see what council says about this one 😂
