    ACT to send fifth taskforce to Victorian bushfires

    The ACT will today (Thursday) send its fifth taskforce deployment to Victoria to assist with the current bushfires.

    ACT Taskforce 5 will consist of a total of 15 firefighting vehicles and personnel from the ACT Fire Brigade and ACT Rural Fire Service with a range of support similar to previous deployments including intensive care paramedics, state emergency service volunteers, mechanics and an ICT technician.

    The latest ACT deployment will cover one shift a day tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday before returning to Canberra on Monday.

    The taskforce are expected to report to local fire controllers at Daylesford then be assigned to a fireground within the area.

Safe travels.
