Nymboida Wilderness Rescue Team goes back to base

COUNTLESS Bunnings barbecues and a few grants from the Volunteer Rescue Association have brought Paul McIntyre's dreams to fruition.

The Nymboida Wilderness Rescue Team will finally have a place to call home after 17 years of operation.

An American style barn shed has been constructed in Coutts Crossing, providing the team with a place to base themselves and store equipment.

"Our equipment used to be stored at members' properties," team Captain Mr McIntyre said.

The Volunteer Rescue Association helped to fund the shed.

"We also did a lot of Bunnings sausage sizzles," Mr McIntyre said with a laugh.

The shed is built on land leased from Clarence Valley Council and is already proving helpful to the team.

The Nymboida Wilderness Rescue Team conducts rescues, searches and vehicle recoveries.

  • The VRA shed will be officially opened on December 7 at 1pm.
  • The shed is on Moe Macintosh Way, Coutts Crossing.
  • Anyone interested in joining the team can phone Paul McIntyre on 0428 154 728 or email nwrt@floodedcreek.com.au
