Timeline PhotosAn update from the Springbrook Rural Fire Brigade.
Thursday 12th September 2019. 8.39am.

The current role of Springbrook RFB is to be on standby in case of fire on the mountain and to keep the community informed.

Springbrook RFB firefighters have not been working in Numinbah since the afternoon of the 6th September.

We haven't had enough experienced crews to have a standby crew on the mountain and another to go down to Numinbah as well.

It is vital that there is an experienced crew available to fight any fire that may start on Springbrook Mountain as any fire here would be dangerous under present dry conditions and spread quickly.

We have worked at Numinbah three times in the previous week or so.

We are extremely grateful to Numinbah RFB and others who so expertly and professionally put in and controlled the fires within those control lines.

Today things are looking pretty good, but tomorrow may be a bit more challenging because of weather conditions.

It is vital that complacency does not creep in as the weather is warming up again tomorrow. We can’t relax until all fires in our region are extinguished and that may not be for some time to come.

We will continue to remind you to stay alert and check Qld Rural Fire website and The SMCA and Numinbah Rural Fire Brigade Facebook and listen to ABC radio 91.7fm.
Stay alert and prepared.
