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!👩🏻🚒🔥👨🏻🚒
Busy day out with the SES 👩🏻🚒🔥🏚🛠 #GetReadyWeek

*Operation Knock Knock is a state-wide, multi-agency community engagement initiative that will mobilise SES in their local communities in an effort to raise awareness of the importance of resilience, preparation for hazards, and community connectedness.*
SES community engagement event with the flood boat. Lightening overhead really drummed home the ‘be storm ready’ messages!! 🚨⛵️🧡🌦
Tonight’s SES training was a visit to the Brisbane Water Police ⚓️ wonderful insight into how we work together in search & rescue situations involving waterways. So much respect for these highly-skilled men and women who hold themselves to such a high standard of operational readiness ⛴🚁🚔🚨
