Looks like DENR are dealing with Wilpena with some air support from us, judging on the pagers.


I saw Eudunda also paged for a crew for Moomba, but noone else from R2, but they may have done it by phone....

Bool Lagoon would have a long way to go to get to Wilpena...!!

There are three types of people in the world.  Those that watch things happen, those who make things happen, and those who wonder what happened.

They'll probably forget to take structural kit..if asset protection/BA is required lol   At least hopefully take a structural helmet and flash hood.

Treat everyone as if they are an idiot, until they prove you otherwise.
