Australia is burning at an unprecedented rate. Truly beyond anything it has ever experienced. Their All Volunteer Fire Department has quickly realized that this is a highly unusual event and are overwhelmed.
Fire season began months ago and there is no end in sight. It is time for allied governments to send aid in the form of firefighters and equipment. This is an emergency and we cannot stand by without offering our assistance. The amount of suffering is immense.
Acting now will save many human lives, as well as treasured flora and fauna, some species of which are now lost forever, never to return. This is an emergency and we cannot stand by without offering our assistance.
