New Yeti to keep local firies cool
THOSE fighting fires alongside the Tinaroo Rural Fire Brigade will now have easy access to hydration thanks to a donation from Atherton Gas and Camping.
Generously donated by Roger and Annette Wadley of Atherton Gas and Camping, this gesture coincides with the launch of the Yeti "Rescue Red" series, honouring those who risk their lives for others.
Amidst the onset of fire season, the brigade has already been actively battling wildfires and aiding deployments to Townsville.
Les Green and Darryl Dilger accepted the donation from Atherton Gas and Camping, and said their support was invaluable, and the cooler will serve to provide much-needed hydration for the hardworking volunteers.
“When we heard the latest limited release YETI colour was inspired by those that risk their lives to protect ours, we immediately thought of the Tinaroo Rural Fire Brigade,” Mr Wadley said.
“We are very proud to support these local volunteers in our community. The hard cooler is incredibly tough and keeps ice for many days.
“They can have some ice cold refreshments after a hard day fighting fires.”
