Firefighters: Local Emergency Services work with the RAAF


Queensland Fire and Emergency Services recently worked with firefighters from No 23 Squadron at RAAF Base Amberley to run through a hazardous material and decontamination exercise.

Key areas of the training included the fitting of appropriate personal protective equipment, product identification, chemical containment and clean up, education on the use of testing kits, casualty removal, medical requirements, and set up and use of the decontamination trailer.

Joint exercises such as this provide significant upgrades and insights for Air Force’s Firefighting capability.
