CFS given mill insight

An education and information session was recently held at the KCA Millicent Mill where 15 volunteer firefighters from the Country Fire Service Brigades at Millicent, Glencoe and Tantanoola were updated on the complexities if a fire was to occur in the vicinity of the Yankee Dryer and other sophisticated manufacturing plant.

The session was led by KCA personnel and contractors and lasted about 2.5 hours.

Paid CFS personnel from Adelaide as well as the Region Five Headquarters at Naracoorte were also present.

It coincided with the regular Wednesday training night of the Wattle Range CFS Group.

KCA Millicent Mill manager Adam Carpenter said such sessions with the CFS are part of the emergency preparedness for the plant.

“The Millicent Mill hosted the CFS orientation visit and education session for the mill’s critical equipment to ensure that regional emergency services are ready to support it in the unlikely event of a fire emergency,” Mr Carpenter said.
