There are More than two hundred men in heavy fire manures and one single woman among them all wears safety clothing. It looked like the night from Monday to Tuesday and the next day at the Skeins. It was there, in the area of several hundreds of meters, that the eighteen fire brigades strengthened the natural dam.

It was threatening that, at the highest flows, the river Morava could be overcome in this critical section. "When we were just over the morning, we all had to pull our legs one by one," remembers Runny, 38-year-old volunteer firefighter from Durban.

On Monday, at about six o'clock in the evening, a report from the operational fire brigade, she and her husband were already ready to leave.

On the dike, she got a raincoat and rubber boots. Her task was clear - all night, along with fifteen other firefighters, stretching the geo textile firing on the dam, which was to be held on both sides by the stops, so that she would not miss the natural dam.

"It was tedious and infinite, only reflective tapes on my minus colleagues were visible in the dark," remembers the firefighter for the time when an electricity generating unit ceased to work overnight.

Casting up to twenty pounds of heavy sacks of sand along the Skeins dam made it more difficult for rain and cold weather. "The guys who wore sacks of sand all night on their shoulders fell with fatigue on the slippery surface of the mud dam," Rudolph described.

People are going to be in trouble

Even though it has been interfering with the floods in the past years, so much action has taken place on Monday for the first time. "It is strange how people can help in such crisis situations, even if they are sometimes ill-treated, misfortune is always able to bring them together," says a woman who has reached the bottom of the power when building the dyke.

She did not fail to add that it was a team work, and that admiration was not the only voluntary firefighter in action, but all those who wear safety vest and worked long and long hours on the dam to prevent the water element from causing even more damage.

When it began to dawn, nine hundred exhausted firemen were replaced by about a hundred fresh ones. "I was only sleeping until eleven, and then I had to get up and go to the lunch fast," she laughed at the volunteer firefighter.
