That here at the Down Under Divas, WE LOVE FIREMEN!

And no, not just because they are hot.

New South Wales has been besieged by fires the past few weeks, the hot, dry, windy conditions making them difficult to control. Our very own Lexxie Couper had a close call with a major fire yesterday and last night, but thanks to the tireless work of the Royal Fire Service of NSW and the many additional men and women who flew in from out of state, the fire was controlled and the area has now been downgraded from the state of emergency it was in. Some of these people are paid for what they do–many are volunteers who are always in need of donations so they can keep doing their very necessary work. If you are interested in donating to your Rural Fire Brigade you can find out more here.

Never have we been more aware of the vital work our emergency services do, especially our beloved firefighters. Where would we be without them?
