A church service will be held this month on the Far South Coast to thank volunteer firefighters for all their efforts to protect our community.
The Anglican Church at the tiny village of Quaama, south of Cobargo, will hold the service on Sunday, September 24, at 10am.
“Across Eurobodalla there are almost 1000 Rural Fire Service volunteers,” a spokeswoman said.
“In the past 12 months, they attended almost 800 different incidents.
“These included house and bush fires and motor vehicle accidents.
“Each of these incidents presents potential risks to these volunteers.

“As the next fire season starts, we will be holding a special service to thank the volunteers for their support to our community and bless the volunteers and paid staff and all their equipment in the coming year.
“Please join us to support our local Rural Fire Service.”
Brunch will be served after the church service.
