SES/ Volunteer Coastguard / Rural Fire Brigade

The NPA Region is serviced by a volunteer SES core, trained in road crash recovery, emergency housing repairs, fire fighting and coast guard duties. SES trains regularly from their base shed, located in Seisia.

NPARC is proud to support our local Emergency Services through assisting in communication upgrades and the donation of the SES Shed.

NPA Emergency Services promote emergency response awarness at regional events, including a demonstration at the NPA Show 2012 where the SES squad removed a car roof using jaws of life, working with NPA Ambulance and Police services to clear the scene and treat the patient while Rural Fire Brigade put out the car fire.  

NPA Emergency serviecs also participated in a controlled airport 'emergency' activity where a fake plane crash (simulated by a bus on the runway) was carried out at the regional airport. (Pictured Below: please note, this was a simulated crash, not an actual emergency and no-one was injured during the course of the activity.)
