Firies helping out

THREE men are assisting police with their investigation into an alleged assault in Mornington on 14 January. Police have thanked members of the public who responded to a call for assistance in identifying the men.

BAXTER Fire Brigade welcomed back on March 15 member Piet Van Hooydonk (above), who along with 22 CFA and 18 SES personnel returned from a five-day deployment to NSW helping with the flood crisis. Mr Van Hooydonk told friends he met some amazingly resilient humans, saw some eyeopening things, and heard some unbelievable stories of grit, determination, grief, and community spirit. “Got to do it all with some amazing volunteers and staff from both CFA and SES and formed some friendships that will last a lifetime,” he said.
