Some people have provided significant acts of kindness and community support. Their generous actions and assistance have enabled Boral to supply water carts, equipment and water from quarries to fire-stricken areas. A special thanks goes to the tireless work of all Boral employees in Australia who are volunteer firefighters and will receive unlimited paid leave while they support their local communities.
