“The devastating fires of February 2009 were amongst the worst natural disasters in our nation’s history. Tragically, 173 lives were lost as a direct result of the terrible fires on what has become known as Black Saturday. The shock and horror of this event reverberated around the globe with an unprecedented response in the form of donations and offers of assistance.”
