RESCUE operators from across the north west region of the state have recently completed a workshop and assessment in 'Industrial and Domestic Rescue' operations and ‘Urban Search and Rescue’ operations.

Rescue operators from Glen Innes, Deepwater, Moree and Bingara had to sit a written exam and then demonstrate a variety of rescues.

Glen Innes SES Unit Deputy Controller Sarah White congratulated the local operators for taking part and passing their assessment. 

“These new skills will help us keep our community safer and in turn make sure we are safe in the process”, she said.
