Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Support Rural Fire Brigade

District Exercise 2015

A significant number of the Support Brigade membership participated in the day-long annual district exercise today.

The event involves pretty much anything that the organisers may come up with on the day, and is designed to test all brigades' readiness for the approaching fire season.

Today Support Brigade was involved in all of the following and more:

  • Logistics and transport organisation
  • Delivery of meals, supplies and personnel
  • Quick response to requests on short notice
  • Management of the event staging area, including movement and control of fire vehicles and vehicles owned by the general public
  • Deployment of the buoywall and assistance with pumping and firefighting exercises
  • Radio communications
  • Inspection of fire vehicles

It was a long but thoroughly rewarding day.
