Consistent Dependable Service

August 29, 2019

“…I can’t help but notice the MSR road shoulders, ditches and fence lines are being well maintained and cut back. It is a constant effort to keep these areas free of vegetation; these maintained areas act as a firebreak barrier to slow the progress of bushfires…This effort is noticed and appreciated by myself and the DND.”
