Flood boat weekend for voulnteers - The Inverell Times

by | July 29, 2014

A total of 20 SES volunteers from the northwest region gathered in Bingara for the first of what is hoped to be an annual Flood Boat Weekend a week ago.

They came from all over, including Inverell, Warialda, Bingara, Moree and Glenn Innes. 

The aim of the weekend was to keep the volunteers' skills in flood rescue techniques up and current, and to give them the opportunity to learn from more experienced flood rescue operators. 

Six flood boats were used for the workshops, held on the waters of Copeton Dam and the Gwydir River at Bingara.
