callout #1

Hurrah! Promise I won’t blog everytime we get a callout at the Takapau Volunteer Fire Brigade, but this is my first, so I’m allowed to!

Couldn’t have asked for better – a small grass fire that was already out on arrival thanks to a nearby farmer working on his tractor (started on the highway probably by a cigarette). Then to add to the excitement, we got sent to another grass fire down the road that turned out to be misguided directions to the first one.

So all in all, a good start for me. Got the nerves out of the road and will be all sorted for the next one. Good thing I was at my friend’s house about to have a wine when her hubby’s pager went off (cos I don’t have mine yet!)

You should have seen my hands shaking though!




  1. You will be just as awesome at this Kate as everything else you do xx
