SES display, Field Command & Rescue teams at Adelaide Show
« on: August 30, 2006, 01:08:19 PM »
Hi,

In case you are wandering around the Royal Adelaide Show and get close to the food courts (believe Boulevard Food Court near the Dairy Farmers Fun Park) near the Rose Tce entrance, then come and visit the SA State Emergency Service.

Their will be three parts to the SES area. A Public Relations/Recruitment display organised in conjunction with the SASESVA, Rescue team on standby to assist SAPOL and St Johns with associated rescue vehicle and a Field Command bus monitoring multi-agency and other talkgroups.

Rescue and Comms teams are rostered in two shifts per day.

Unless your silly nuff to do a full day stint or two  :evil:

It can be hard work, but its filtered fun. I just hope that people at least wash their oranges first this time and dont look like the usual bag of crap.

Are we doing escort runs infront of the ambos again this year or have they given up on that idea?

Any chance of being sent a copy of the breif??

Yeah I Remember The People In There Old VB Shirts Not The Best Publicity For The CFS.

As For The SES Display, Might Have To Go And Check It Out, I Will Have Time To Kill Before The CFS Display Everynight As I Am Going Straight From Work.

As For Clean PPE/PPC Um Mine Is Permanently Dirty, Doesnt Matter If I Wash It Its Still The Same.

God I wish the CFS would get their act together and have a display again. Don't need the Promo unit Pantech, just a 34 and a Pumper and thats enough of a display.

Ill have to drop by you crazy orange people and say hi.

They Havent Done It The Last To Years Cause They Have The 15 Min Of Flame Instead.  I Think It Gets Alot More Advertising That Yay.

Although I Did Hear This Is The Last One For 2x Years Then They Might Do The 15 Min Of Flame Again.  So Maybe During That 2x Year Break They Might Go Back To The Royal Show Display.

What's the point of getting more advertising if there is no CFS diplay to benefit from it...?
Wouldn't it be better to have a CFS stand, AND the main arena show? IMO people are more likely to come and talk to a CFS volunteer at a stand if they're interested, than to ring a recruiting hotline...

The location of the SES display and SES crew was changed last night when some of the SES vehicles and tents were positioned.

We are now against the Rose Tce fence in the north-east corner of the Showgrounds. Go near the Channel 10 display area which is near the Mad Mouse ride. We are near that location.

From what I have heard, the new location is not as good as the original location, but we can get more vehicles in. The radio headsets will be used to reduce the noise from the rides I think !!

The SES Dog Squad will be their each day at the display so that provides additional variety.

Should be good, so long as the rescue crew stays at the showground instead of gallivanting off home whenever their unit pagers go off...

Remaining crews of the local SES LHQ, not at the Showgrounds, will attend to any taskings outside of the Showgrounds area.

The SES Units who have vehicles rostered at the showgrounds area have additional vehicles in their LHQ to provide emergency coverage.

If it is a large incident, then normal SES operating procedures will occur and another SES Unit will be dispatched to assist the first responder.

From listening to the muti-agency talkgroup and SES SHQ talkgroup via 'Scanner Monitoring in SA website', the SES crews have been quite busy this afternoon. I believe several ambulance escorts and assist St John with a spinal casualty.
