In light of the current bush fire crisis in NSW, Aurora is highlighting the work of the Rural Fire Service by broadcasting documentary A.C.T. FIRESTORM on Sunday, 27th October at 8pm. The documentary tells the story of the fire-fighters involved in the 2003 ACT bush fire disaster that destroyed over 500 homes and resulted in the loss of four lives.
The film’s producer and director, Noel Sadler, is a member of the Rural Fire Service and has been on duty fighting fires in the Blue Mountains this week. He was also on duty during the 2003 ACT bush fires, and was last year invited back to record interviews with some of the other fire-fighters who served during that disaster.
Mr Sadler said: “As with the ACT firestorm in 2003, the current fires in the Blue Mountains have been building up to potentially have the same super-fire effect with the same destructive result. Films like A.C.T. FIRESTORM help to inform the public of the full dangers and the damage that such fires can create.”
