Despite the Wellington region being rocked by a strong 6.5 magnitude earthquake on 21st July, Stokes Valley Volunteer Fire Brigade attended less than half the number of call-outs in July than in June.

The storm that hit the region back in June kept the brigade much busier than the recent earthquake did, which, in a funny kind of way, is probably a good thing (considering the utter devastation that the people down in Canterbury have had to deal with).  The brigade were called out to just two earthquake-related incidents, including one to Hutt Hospital.
