Roger lends helping hand to home town after Cyclone Marcia

ROGER Frater has been working flat out since Cyclone Marcia hit the region weeks ago.

The former Rockhampton resident brought his business to the area after the cyclone came through on February 20.

Roger, who owns Frater Asbestos and Demolition, is based in Brisbane but says he often does work in his home town and wanted to help out.

For the past month Roger and his employees have been working in Yeppoon and Rockhampton on properties containing asbestos.

"At this stage we've been busy," Roger said.

He expects to be based in Yeppoon for a while yet as he's waiting for more jobs to come through in the coming weeks.

"In Yeppoon, nearly every second house has asbestos in it, normally it's somewhere in the property," he said. "Rockhampton is the same with asbestos, there's a lot in old Queenslander homes."

Roger was working this week in Yeppoon before making a quick trip back to his home in Brisbane yesterday.

He said he'll be back after Easter to keep working.

The asbestos expert said he and his employees had even rented a house in Yeppoon as they planned to be working in the region for weeks.
