Road res­cue champs

Dubbo Photo News - - Emergency issues -

BY all ac­counts the Aus­tralian Road Res­cue Or­gan­i­sa­tion (ARRO) cham­pi­onships held at Dubbo’s show­ground went off in­cred­i­bly well.

Peo­ple who have never seen our res­cue ser­vices in oper­a­tion say they were in­cred­i­bly im­pressed with the skills and team­work in­volved.

It’s a great event for the city to host and it’s a tremen­dous op­por­tu­nity for lo­cals to see what sort of work our emer­gency ser­vices are ca­pa­ble of, as well as send­ing a strong sig­nal to driv­ers that there are good rea­sons to drive de­fen­sively and be care­ful on our roads.

Dubbo fire­fight­ers com­peted in the ARRO com­pe­ti­tion. They were very im­pres­sive con­sid­er­ing the short prepa­ra­tion time and hav­ing never com­peted in such a com­pe­ti­tion be­fore.
