The MKRFA deployed a 2-crew taskforce to the Hanmer fire. Led by Phil "Hoddy" Hodson and made up of personnel from Dept of Conservation Kaikoura staff and Blenheim, Goose Bay, Kaikoura and Koromiko VRFF's, the taskforce did an outstanding job putting in line around this gnarly 60Ha fire. Hardwork and handtools were the orders for the three days and the taskforce responded.
A great effort that has been recognised by the regional management team - My thanks goes to Hoddy and his deployment taskforce.
