Massive Praise To Firefighters Who Gave Up Christmas And Boxing Day To Keep Us Safe

Massive Praise To Firefighters Who Gave Up Christmas And Boxing Day To Keep Us Safe

Millions of Aussies tucked into a hearty meal and lapped up some quality family time on Christmas Day before relaxing in the sun yesterday for Boxing Day.

But there was a group of people who weren't sipping on a beer or enjoying some Christmas ham. These people were on the frontlines ensuring everyone else could have a worry-free holiday period.

There were thousands of volunteer and professional firefighters across the country over the last two days that were working around the clock, under tough conditions, to keep everyone safe.

For that, they deserve a massive shoutout and endless praise.

The New South Wales Rural Fire Service paid tribute to its members, writing on Twitter: "A huge shout-out to all our firefighters and emergency service officers out helping to contain bush fires this Christmas.

"More than 2,500 personnel are working to protect communities across NSW today. Merry Christmas and please stay safe these holidays."

Other Aussies took to social media to heap thanks onto these men and women who have been risking their lives every day.

A person wrote on Reddit: "Without you today would be harder for a lot of people. I hope you find the time to get the rest and relaxation you need. Happy Holidays guys! Our country would come to a grinding halt without you."

The Australian climate is expected to be rough for some parts of the country next week, with hot, dry and windy conditions forecast.

Sky News Meteorologist Rob Sharpe. said: "As we move through the week though, that heat is going to build through southern parts of Australia.

"Initially, winds are not going to be that strong so we're going to see a few regions with severe fire danger on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

But NSW isn't the only place in Australia that will be baking.

Parts of Victoria are expected to get into the 40s and even Tasmania is forecast to reach the mid-30s.

NSW Health has issued this warning about hot conditions: "Exposure to high temperatures can lead to life-threatening heat-related illness such as heat stroke and heat exhaustion. More commonly, heat can make existing chronic illness worse. This can have equally serious consequences such as inducing a heart attack in someone who has a heart condition."

Be safe out there.
