Yesterday afternoon Sally Lightburn of Booleroo CFS, has been deployed to Queensland along with 17 other Incident Management personnel to assist the Queensland firefighting effort.
Sally is an Administrator officer for the Incident Management Team.
The teams are made up of 12 SA Country Fire Service staff and volunteers.
There are 80 fires currently in need of assistance and it is expected that the team will be in Queensland for the next 5 days, returning Tuesday next week.
“There is potential for a new team to return if fires persist” says Ali Martin, CFS Senior Media and Communications Officer.
