Firstly, thank you almost seems a little inadequate considering the enormity of the situation where those working tirelessly at ground zero were able to amazingly contain the fire and minimize overall damage to the area.
Also appreciation goes out to ABC Sunshine Coast for their collaborative efforts with NOOSA FM to keep our community informed at all stages throughout the fire fighting and subsequent evacuation.
Gratitude must also go out to all of those volunteers who generously offered assistance with the evacuation of homes in the threatened area as well as manning the evacuation centres set up around the region.
And of course a big thank you to 'The Captain' for keeping us updated on air with key events and developments into the evening.
***TO ALL OUR WONDERFUL LISTENERS AND FACEBOOK FOLLOWERS***:
From 10 pm tonight to 6 am Wednesday morning Noosa FM will transmit the live broadcast emergency program of the Sunshine Coast ABC Radio. We hope you will all benefit from this collaboration between Noosa FM Community Radio and ABC Sunshine Coast.
