Tasmanian Forest Industry contributions to the NSW firefighting effort

The Network would like to acknowledge the tireless work of all firefighters and volunteers working in challenging conditions on the mainland.

We send our thoughts and well wishes to all those who have been affected by the bushfires during the last two months.

The Network would like to acknowledge Sustainable Timber Tasmania for their deployment of staff to NSW to assist in the firefighting effort.

In total, Sustainable Timber Tasmania have sent 16 staff members to NSW between 30 October and 17 November.

The crews deployed have worked as tanker-based firefighters, logistics support, and community protection work in challenging conditions.

Sustainable Timber Tasmania Fire Management Manager, Dean Sheehan said STT is very proud of the way its employees are quick to respond to call outs for help and of the way they conduct themselves so professionally in the field.
