Thanks to all who par­tic­i­pated in the may­hem

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

On be­half of the Mos­man Fire and Emer­gency Ser­vice, I would like to thank the fol­low­ing ser­vices and lo­cal busi­nesses who do­nated their time and equip­ment at this years very suc­cess­ful Road Crash Sce­nario for the Year 12 Moss­man High School Stu­dents:

Port Dou­glas Fire & Emer­gency Ser­vices, Cairns Res­cue Tech team on 711 Lima, Res­cue 510 He­li­copter, Wonga Ru­ral Fire Bri­gade, Moss­man SES, Moss­man, Port Dou­glas & Cairns Am­bu­lance Ser­vice, Moss­man Po­lice Ser­vice, Moss­man & Port Dou­glas Com­mu­nity Fu­ner­als,

Oak­dare Hold­ings – for do­nat­ing the semi trailer, Bur­mack Tow­ing Moss­man – for drop­ping off the car at the school, pick­ing up and dump­ing the wreck, the Stu­dents in Year 12 and 11 who were the ca­su­al­ties and vic­tims in the ve­hi­cles, Moss­man High School film crew, Moss­man High for al­low­ing us to present this sce­nario and train­ing ex­er­cise.

Along with the pre­sen­ta­tion to the school year 12s, this sce­nario also pro­vided the emer­gency ser­vices with a great multi agency train­ing ex­er­cise.

We are of­ten called out to in­ci­dents that in­volve quite a num­ber of agen­cies and the ex­er­cise was a great way to hone our skills and work as an in­ter­graded team un­der pres­sure and in front of an au­di­ence, the end re­sult was a well ex­e­cuted, very pro­duc­tive, pro­fes­sional res­cue and re­cov­ery.

The feed­back from the teach­ers, stu­dent and fam­ily mem­bers in the com­mu­nity has been very pos­i­tive and they ac­knowl­edged our prac­ti­cal ap­proach in aim­ing to ed­u­cate the stu­dents and re­duc­ing the road toll
