Annual Flood Boat Training

Splish splash training at SES tonight ~ Flood boat familiarisation, put a life jacket on in the water, did some full PPE laps, and then learnt how to use a back board to pull someone out! Trainers really out did themselves 🧑 #yachtsoffun #whateverfloatsyaboat #keepingitreel πŸŒŠπŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸš’β›΅οΈ ~ πŸ“Έ by Christy Ccg & Nicole

Ferny Grove School Fete ~ Northern Group ~ Community Engagement

Team Leader. First event run mostly on my own. First time face painting, went really well with the Halloween theme (I really need practice!). Constant stream of families with kids wanting to dress up and climb aboard the flood boat. Lots of discussion about storm season. Minister for Agriculture & Local Councillor both stopped by for long chats! Lots of fun 🧑

Fire Station Visit

Joined tonight’s Monday night mystery exercise visiting the Kemp Place Fire Station in Fortitude Valley!! So interesting to find out more about what skills the firies would most like us SES to have (chainsaw and flood boat), to hear some war stories, and learn about their functional capabilities across the state – from bushfires to road crash rescue to the inner city student accommodation false alarms!πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸš’πŸ”₯πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸš’
