September 23, 2019 - 9 lives: Innisfail Firies save cat from roof

Seeing a cat stuck on the back roof of the old Target building, Council staff alerted the Innisfail fire fighters that a rescue was needed.

The Innisfail Council administration building overlooks the back of the former Target building and Council staff raised the alarm after seeing the cat in distress.

Innisfail Fire and Rescue Service Officer in Charge, James Woodcraft with his team Mark Bottcher (who went up the ladder to the roof), Glenn Buckton, Justin Georgenson and Chris Magrady answered the call and within minutes had released the cat, whose foot became stuck between the drain and the roof.

Council thanks staff and the Innisfail fire fighters for their proactive concern for all residents in the Cassowary Coast region.
