Irrewarra and Birregurra brigades recently undertook an evening of collaboration and training with the Colac SES.

The groups came together, with a selection of their vehicles, to better understand how each contributes equipment, personnel and skill at the scene of a road crash rescue. As well as enhancing their understandings of the practical aspects, the brigades and SES unit are enjoying building relationships that will help them communicate and work together effectively at a crash scene.

The groups are planning to join forces again in early 2015 to set up and manage a simulated road accident involving fire.
