A LOCAL ex-serviceman and current MFS firefighter will tackle a marathon walk this weekend to raise funds and awareness for veterans and emergency services personnel struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
THE life-saving skills and expertise of local retained firefighters from three Riverland stations were put to the test this week in the spirit of competition.
EMERGENCY service workers converged on a Renmark service station on Saturday for a different kind of ‘smoko’ when a flu fire evacuated staff from the OTR building.
OCCUPANTS of a van that nearly fell off a Renmark causeway last Friday were “fortunate” to escape injury, a local emergency services leader says.
DRIVER error rather than design faults are behind the history of accidents at a Barmera intersection, local emergency service figures say.
TWO of Berri’s retained firefighters were recently honoured with long-service medals for their dedicated contributions to the Riverland community.
EMERGENCY services were kept busy over the weekend, attending three structure fires across different Riverland towns that caused thousands of dollars worth of damage.
