A LATROBE City councillor is calling for a fire-bombing helicopter to be based at Latrobe Regional Airport this fire season and secured for the future.

A decision on where the state’s air fleet will be allocated this season is expected in October.

Councillor Kellie O’Callaghan wants to see an ongoing commitment to a Latrobe Valley-based helicopter rather than a yearly determination. But Emergency Management Commissioner Craig Lapsley said he supported the allocation of aircraft as a year-by-year decision based on fire conditions.

Cr O’Callaghan said the Valley had a significant need for aircraft because of its proximity to mines and risk of fire.

“It’s important that coming out of the fire experience we’ve had and the learnings from the (Hazelwood Mine Fire) Inquiry that we have a demonstrated commitment for our firefighters and community and ensuring that they have all the resources they require and we’re keeping them safe,” Cr O’Callaghan said.

“I will be seeking formal support from my council colleagues.”

According to Mr Lapsley, the government leases a core group of 42 aircraft, 24 of which are helicopters.

The helicopters are generally based at Colac, Ballarat, Bendigo, Healesville, Olinda, Essendon, Mansfield, Ovens, Shepparton, Benalla and Heyfield.

There are two fixed-wing aircraft based at Latrobe Regional Airport, while Hancock Victoria Plantations has a small helicopter which also services the Valley.

Cr O’Callaghan raised concerns the fixed-wing aircraft did not have as quick a turnaround as a bombing helicopter and the Heyfield helicopter was largely used by the Department of Environment and Primary Industries.

Mr Lapsley said the Heyfield helicopter was ideally placed to be able to travel north as well as reach the Latrobe Valley in 10 minutes.

He said authorities accepted helicopters did not always have to be at their home base and could move around.

Mr Lapsley said while helicopters were fast, they could not carry as much water as a fixed-wing aircraft.

He said authorities would receive advice from the Bureau of Meteorology in early October about the forecast summer conditions and whether the base aircraft fleet needed to be bolstered by a backup fleet.

“If it is a longer, drier summer we’d look at the Valley as an option (for a helicopter),” Mr Lapsley said.

Morwell Fire Brigade officer in charge Shane Mynard said helicopters assisted fire crews in the initial attack and knocking the head of a fire down, as well as aerial observation.

“Seeing the air capacity in regards to a bomber at the Latrobe Valley would always assist us during the summer period,” Mr Mynard said.

Member for Morwell Russell Northe said the government had established a fire preparedness taskforce led by Mr Lapsley and would support emergency services with the resources required “to ensure this plan is robust, reliable and truly effective”.

Synthetic cannabis turned a Morwell woman’s life upside-down.RELATED COVERAGE:Govt’s synthetic drug crackdown
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

It took watching three of her friends “drop like flies” after trying synthetic cannabis to get a former addict to stop using the legal drugs.

Amy – not her real name – said the drugs had “ruined” her life over a period of about one-and-a-half years, but she was now four weeks clean.

The 35 year-old Morwell resident said she wanted to warn others of the dangers of synthetic drugs, which can be purchased over-the-counter at some shops and online.

“It became highly addictive very fast,” Amy said.

“It was so strong it comatose me on my first dose. I couldn’t move for 20 to 30 minutes. I could hear and see, I just couldn’t move.”

Despite a negative first experience Amy returned for more and soon became addicted as the drug turned her life “completely upside-down”.

“I had no motivation or will to do even the smallest tasks of the day. I just wanted to stay in and get high,” she said.

“I would forget what I was saying mid-sentence… I couldn’t form the words to generate a sentence.

“I couldn’t walk from my front door to the letter box, I’d be out of breath.”

Amy said she turned to the drug to avoid any repercussions of being caught with actual marijuana – which she had used for 16 years – not expecting her “solution” to have much worse consequences.

“Cannabis is mild compared to it. I’d put (synthetic cannabis) up there with heroin and ice,” Amy said.

She said she continued to use but began to build up a resistance to it.

Amy said she purchased a couple of bags of synthetic cannabis, but gave it to her friends after feeling none of the normal sensations with its use.

“I watched one stop breathing and his heart stop, one had a fit on the floor and the other had a psychotic episode,” Amy said.

“It hadn’t done anything to me, but I watched three friends drop like flies.”

Soon after she heard of two other friends who had similarly frightening experiences and decided to stop using.

“I thought, ‘I can’t have this in my life anymore’,” Amy said.

“I could never live with myself if I lost friends because of it, because they wanted to see what I was doing and why I was so into this drug.”

Amy said while the initial withdrawal period was hard – symptoms included headaches, nausea and hot and cold flushes – she persevered and was now getting her life back on track.

“I’m applying for jobs, I’m going back into my sports field. I’m joining a gym to get myself fit again,” Amy said.

She said she wanted the synthetic drugs made illegal and their dangers exposed.

“There’s nothing out there that warns people of the dangers of this stuff,” Amy said.

“It’s readily available on the shelf.

“I can’t stress to you enough how much your will to live is affected by this stuff.”

Amy encouraged others who may be thinking about stopping using to push through the initial pain.

“It takes about four days to get it completely out of your system,” she said.

“Then you’ve just got to be strong and keep yourself occupied.”

A convenience store worker armed with nothing more than a stool has fended off a gun-toting would-be thief.

The gunman entered the convenience store on School Road, Yeronga, about 2pm on Sunday and demanded cash.

But the store attendant refused to hand over any money and threatened the gunman with a stool.

The would-be thief fled empty-handed.

The same gunman is believed to have held up a 7-Eleven store on Orange Grove Road at Coopers Plains about 5am on Sunday.

Police have released CCTV images of the gunman entering the 7-Eleven store with their appeal for information from the public.

The man, believed to be about 20 years old, is described as 175cm tall with blonde hair.

He was wearing a black beanie, black shorts and a black hooded jumper.

Brisbane Region Inspector Steve Flori has appealed for anyone who recognises the man to contact police.

“We believe someone in the community knows who this man is and we urge them to call Crime Stoppers and help police solve these matters,” he said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
