This was the first year I’d attended the Emergency Service’s Expo held at Kiama and I must say, it was a very well orchestrated day.
The Kiama foreshore at the Boat Harbour makes a very picturesque backdrop for this event and while other parts of the Illawarra were experiencing squally weather, Kiama was bathed in mostly sunshine.
Every Emergency Service from Surf Life Saving, Police, Ambulance, Fire Brigade, RFS and SES all provided a static display along with some form of practical demonstration. The NSWAS helicopter and NSWFB Bronto stole the show with their big exciting toys.
The SES proudly displayed their Vertical Rescue, Road Crash Rescue and Flood Rescue capabilities in a number of demonstrations.
Families were able to wander freely amongst the various vehicles, boats and equipment while the kids took great joy in climbing behind the steering wheel of their favourite truck.
What a great day.
