Who doesn't like a man or woman in uniform?
Women adore them, men aspire to be them, and children want to be one when they grow up. What are they? Men in uniform, of course.
On Sunday,1st of May, you will have an opportunity to watch many men and women in uniform at the Emergency Services Expo, where they will be sharing their expertise with members of the public.
Official Flyer for Event
Venture down to Teralba Park, on Pullen Road, Everton Park, for an action packed day of demonstrations and information and meet your emergency response community.
These are the organisations that come together to assist us all in times of natural disaster, pooling together to help our communities respond and recover.
Some of these agencies are very high profile - the Fire fighters, Ambulance Services, Police, and Air and Sea Rescue for example. We see them on the news on the television every night, extinguishing house and bushfires, making a dash to the closest hospital, at an accident or crime scene, and on the waterways on weekends. Who could forget the sea of orange high vis gear after the 2011 Queensland floods, when the S.E.S took to the streets to clean up the aftermath?
Of course, there will also be representatives from other agencies, many manned by volunteers and without uniforms, including Red Cross, Life Line, and R.S.P.C.A, who also provide vital support during times of crisis.
This promises to be a great day out for all the family with lots of power toys on display including surf and flood rescue boats, police response vehicles, and all-terrain vehicles. Truly, is there a child who doesn't have a fascination for fire trucks?
SES after storm damage
Dads are going to go enjoy the high-tech disaster response equipment on display, and there will also be information available to help you be prepared for a disaster in your own neighbourhood. It only takes a storm for a tree to fall on power lines to be without electricity for a day or even longer.
There will also be food trucks, stalls, and heaps of activities to keep the kiddies busy.
The height safety demonstrations should be interesting. For a person such as myself with a heights phobia at least there will be plenty of extremely capable people around if anyone faints.
This event starts at 9am and finishes at 2pm and is a FREE EVENT.
