Bawley Point Rural Fire Service volunteer Lise Percival still doesn't know what to make of her upcoming appearance in a world-famous magazine.
Lise, along with fellow Bawley Point RFS members Luci Somers and Joy Townsend, will be featured in an upcoming edition of Vogue magazine.
She and the others are just soaking it all up.
"I don't really know what to think about it all," Lise said.
"Vogue to me is about fashion - not ordinary people who are in the RFS."
The trio's appearance in the magazine stems from an interview captain of the Bawley Point Rural Fire Service brigade Charlie Magnusson did with well-known ABC journalist Barrie Cassidy during the Currowan fire crisis.
Captain Magnusson told the ABC journalist one of the things that stood out for him during the crisis was a call he and "three young mums" responded too.
Lise remembers the call out well - as would Luci and Joy.
Lise said they had spent the day patrolling the area and putting out spot fires but Charlie had been keeping an eye on a man in Termeil who had decided he would stay and defend his property.
Things ignited quickly and a team went to assist the resident after he made a triple zero call for help.
Lise has vivid memories of the trip up to Termeil.
"Charlie turned around to us and said 'girls get your fire blankets out'," Lise said.
Captain Charlie, with unpredictable fire everywhere, was worried the truck was going to suffer a "burn over" - meaning the firetruck could have been engulfed by fire.
Lise said she exchanged a "look" with Joy and Luci but they were in good hands.
"Charlie was very calm about it - which is typical of Charlie," she said.
Lise said things did get hot, however, the truck was not overcome with flames.
They managed to save the man and get him away from danger.
"His face was very red and we had to pump a lot of water into him," Lise said.
When Vogue heard the story, they arranged an interview and photoshoot - with the magazine to be released on Monday.
Captain Charlie in a previous interview said he was proud of the girls and added they deserved the publicity.
Lise is actually a friend of Charlie's and became a RFS volunteer two years ago.
"I do what I can for the community," she said.
Never in her wildest dreams did she expect to face such a massive bushfire so early in her career.
"I did not expect to face such a fire so quickly or one that got so close to Bawley," she said.
She had fought a few smaller fires and drew heavily upon the training she received.
Lise also learned a lot by watching and following the lead of the more experienced firefighters like captain Charlie.
She described the whole Currowan crisis as being a bit surreal.
"It was just so different to all the summers I ever had down here," she said.
She recalls smoke and ash on the beaches and just being on high alert all the time.
Her husband Chad, who works at Bawley Point's Willinga Park, was also fighting the fires and their 16-year-old daughter Lauren is also a RFS member.
Lise would not be surprised if their 14-year-old daughter Rachael also becomes a RFS volunteer as well.
Rachael and Lauren, during the crisis, stayed at the well-defended Willinga Park while their parents fought the fire.
The family lives in Bawley Point and their home also survived the bushfire.
