According to the National Interagency Fire Center — the government agency that is coordinating the deployment of firefighters from the U.S. — roughly 100 firefighters have been been sent to Australia over the last four weeks, with 50 to 60 more planned to be dispatched Monday. At least sixteen of those firefighters have been sent from California, where fires scorched thousands of acres across the state throughout the fall.

Canada is also sending firefighters to Australia for the first time. Stephen Tulle, duty officer with the Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Center, told CBC that a group of about 36 is assisting.

A few weeks back, when the first Canadians were arriving, it was said that there could be 300 heading this way...

And there will be more Americans arriving in coming weeks..

Meanwhile, over in Britain it has been reported that some 1,000 firefighters and ex-firefighters, and associated personnel, have already put their names forward to volunteer to head this way if needed.

Lets hope that all this money does not fall into the wrong Pockets, there's enough to build a few thousands Houses for those that have lost theirs !

America could stand to send a LOT more firefighters than 150 or so. I hope more sign up and help put an end to this disaster.
