Rapid Relief Team's extraordinary efforts helping firefighters

Wells Haslem has helped its client, the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church, produce a short video documenting the Church's amazing efforts feeding hundreds of firefighters working on the devastating bushfires that ravaged parts of New South Wales, Australia, recently.

Over seven days 350 volunteers from the Church served up to 1600 meals per day.

Thousands of firefighters, other emergency personnel, council workers and media were served 24 hours a day.

The Church's Rapid Relief Team (RRT) supplied 99,000 litres of bulk water.

In the first four days, half of the food and drinks were delivered by the RRT directly to the frontline.

Donations of food and drinks were received from Coles, Woolworths, Joe’s Meats, local butchers, bakeries & Penrith Party Hire.

Hinchinbrook Public School donated a cool room of food and drinks.

The video was shot mostly by Church members. Wells Haslem CEO Benjamin Haslem then worked with video producer, Phil Donnison, to pull the footage together in the video above.
