Community engagement morning chatting everything storm season & emergency kits!! #SES 🧡
Just completed 20hr/2day shift at the State Operations Centre (SOC) shadowing the Public Information Officer (PIO) for the current QLD bushfires.
Absolutely honoured to be in the room where the top brass were making the BIG decisions for this historic fire event, coordinating as they affect several communities across the whole of QLD.
It was a phenomenal learning opportunity that puts me in a position to better assist with or deploy to any disaster event in the state to help with PIO roles such as information/warnings, media liaison, & community liaison.
Thank you to all our wonderful agencies working together to minimise the fire disaster impacts, to all those involved in the massive effort that is controlling the current fires, and to those maintaining the business as usual activities (that don’t just stop when disasters hit)!! Heroes, the lot of you!! 🧡
Many, many thanks to my encouraging and knowledgeable mentor, Trevor Doyle, and fellow trainee, Moreton PIO, Michelle Bowker for all the help and tips!! Look forward to working with you in the future!! ~ AB🌻

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 🌊👩🏼🚒⛵️ ~ 📸 by Christy Ccg & Nicole
