RFS brigades across the Highlands are now better prepared for future bushfires seasons.
Thanks to various donations and fundraisers including FireAID, crews have been able to make a number of improvements around their stations.
For instance, the Avoca Brigade now has reliable internet and a 4G signal booster.
Other stations have also updated their radios and pumps.
RFS Southern Highlands Superintendent Martin Surrey says the ongoing support from the community has been fantastic.
