INJURED FIREFIGHTER UPDATE - Oct 4
Avalon SFF Troy Mahupuku has been transferred back to the Lower Hutt Hospital Burns Unit and continues to make a rapid recovery. He is hoping to be discharged home very soon.
"I want everyone to know how much Jessica and I appreciate all the help and support that has been given to us. There have been heaps of guys come and visit me while I was in Auckland at Middlemore – the month went really fast. Guys from my recruit course came up from different parts of the country as well as people from my old station in Tauranga. Some of the firefighters who visited from Auckland I hadn’t even met before and I appreciated them coming in to show their support. We have also had a lot of help from guys from my station, including two working bees at our house to keep the lawns down and get ready for us coming home – they even got the oven fixed. Thank you everyone who sent cards – I was a bit drugged up when they first arrived so I plan to read them again when I get home. All this support has really shown me how strong the ‘brotherhood’ of firefighters is in a time of need."
Message from Jessica:
"Thanks to all the firemen who came to see Troy and me and mum, who took us out and made us feel looked after. We also appreciated the donations and the cards. Thank you."
