Emergency services hone response skills

Invaluable lessons were learnt when three branches of the emergency services jointly staged a training exercise at Millicent.

The Country Fire Service, SA Ambulance Service and SA Police recently created a night-time team event based on a realistic road crash rescue scenario.

It took place in the industrial area of Millicent and involved 25 personnel in total from all three services.

The so-called “jaws of life” had to be used to cut through the crashed vehicles and free the “victims” of the collision.

“The level of cooperation and integration was outstanding,” stated a senior volunteer fire-fighter.

The thanks of the emergency services go to the three volunteer casualties and to Millicent Scrap Metal for supplying and modifying the cars for the training purposes.
