In case anyone is interested and not heard about them.

The National Disaster Rescue Competitions are being held this weekend (9th & 10th July) in Adelaide.

From http://www.ses.sa.gov.au/site/news_media/events/national_disaster_rescue_competition_2011.jsp
eight teams from '...around the country being put through their paces in a series of eight staged emergency situations including an entrapment, a mass casualty exercise and a rescue from heights.'

Tea Tree Gully SES Unit is representing South Australia after they won the state competition a few months ago.

I believe the teams from interstate arrived today.

Hopefully we will get some coverage in the media.

My personal opinion only.

All teams have arrived, except Northern Territory - they had some problems with flights - so only one NT rep was able to make it to Government House for a reception this evening....

All teams will undertake eight exercises over the weekend - all teams do all exercises - 4 on each day

Some of the exercises look very interesting!!

Photos to come!

Hi Pip
