Australia is in the midst of one of the worst bush fire seasons on record. So far thirty people and countless wild life have lost their lives, along with thousands of properties destroyed. We are just now coming into the peak of the summer season, so tensions are high.
A rapid response to the bush fire emergency
Managing directors John Arnot and Justin Arnot from Access Direct will be out in the community once again this February. Together with the Rapid Relief Team, they will focus on providing support for those affected by these devastating bush fires.
The Rapid Relief Team are a charitable organisation inspired by community spirit and the gift of giving that operates across the globe. They confront some of humankind’s greatest challengers, including natural disasters, heart disease, cancer research and the plight of homelessness.

Are you in the bush fire danger zone?
We strongly urge you to take appropriate precautions if you are living or working near any affected areas.
- Make a plan of what you will do in an emergency, don’t leave it until the last minute.
- Stay informed. Victorians should visit the Vic Emergency website and download the app for iPhone or Android.
- Do not hesitate to evacuate if advised to do so.
The CFA have also put together a very comprehensive Guide to Survival. The guide contains important advice about what to do before, during and after a bush fire. Be sure to take a look and familiarise yourself with the advice from our country fire fighters.
Access Direct is committed to helping those in need. Our hearts go out to those affected by the Australian bush fires and the brave fire fighters doing their best to protect lives and property.
Stay safe out there.
