Great idea to put this video up.

Now is the time to start preparing your house for the bush fire season. The AIDER (Assist Infirm, Disabled and Elderly Residents) program is a free, one-off service which supports some of our most at-risk community members.

The biggest obstacle with an Emergency Service Worker is for them to admit they are having problems.
They are trained to handle any situation and to block their personal fears and trauma when on the job.
The "Mask" they continually wear is the greatest hurdle to overcome and to speak up.......I'm Not Ok, are the three hardest words for some to say.
To ask for help is a sign of strength Not weakness.

This app has been around for a while but for the people that haven't seen it, it is great to give an exact location of where you are if you come along an incident. Time can save lives so anything we can do to speed up a response is important. Download it and have a go!! It's free ... See MoreSee Less

Don't think I would rely on this in an emergency - it's telling me I'm in Booth, ACT - that's 180kms from my current location.

REMINDER - When lighting a fire outside of the bushfire season whether you rent, lease or own the property it's your responsibility to notify your neighbours and local Fire Control Centre. A couple of quick calls can save your local RFS brigade having to turn out unnecessarily and eases the concerns of your neighbours.
