Tea Tree Gully Unit does South Australia proud
Thursday, 24 September 2009

Last weekend the Tea Tree Gully State Emergency Service (SES) Unit was the runner up in the two-day biennial National Disaster Rescue Competition, which was held in Brisbane.

The competition saw teams of volunteers from every state and territory compete against each other in a series of events that demonstrated their skill, knowledge and ability to work in a team environment in the most trying of conditions.

Participants were put through their paces in a series of staged events including a hydraulic exercise, heavy lifting exercise, a series of search and rescue operations from heights, an explosion site exercise, a blacked out building and a large bus crash.

SES Acting Chief Officer Matt Maywald praised the Tea Tree Gully Unit for their hard work and passion for volunteering, with the majority of the team having competed at a national level before.

“The Tea Tree Gully Unit is made up of highly dedicated people, committed to continuous improvement and achievement. The team that competed in Brisbane consisted of six volunteers who have been part of the SES for more than ten years,” said Mr Maywald.

“It is a fantastic achievement that the Tea Tree Gully Unit has finished in the top two places for the last two competitions

“Judging criteria included casualty management, leadership skills, rescue techniques, safety and the completion of each task. The fact that a South Australian team was judged to be one of the best in the country is something we are extremely proud of.”

South Australia will host the next National Disaster Rescue Competition in 2011.

State Rescue Comps are over for another year. 1st Tea Tree Gully 1, 2nd Noarlunga, 3rd Tea Tree Gully 2. Was a close scorecard between 1-2 and 2-3

So off to the Wayville Showgrounds we go for the Nationals on 9 - 10 July.

Was a good weekend all up. The rain decided to show up and see how the comps went but that didn't deter anyone.

Congrats to all seven teams competing. I viewed the stands on Sunday & was amazed at the complicated scenarios. Add in wet weather & it is amazing what the crews can do safely.
