TRAINING SESSION... Local CFS volunteers watch the air tractor AT-802A drop a load during a special training at the Copper Coast Aerodrome recently. The air tractor needs to be filled and back in the sky within minutes if there is an active bushfire, and the aerodrome now has water tanks, which hold 45,000 litres, for the CFS to utilise. In this week’s paper, we look at how local firefighters are preparing for the Fire Danger Season — and how everyone else can do their bit as well.
