Images from the expo
A special kind of magic happens when passionate people get together to talk shop, as captured in a series of photos from Project Expo by CFA volunteer photographer Blair Deljamin on 14 September.
The event brought together 65 project teams from CFA, DEPI, SES, MFB and EMV at the Darebin Arts and Entertainment Centre on Sunday 14 September. It was designed as an opportunity for project teams to not only connect with each other but to showcase their work to the wider emergency services community.
Blair, a member of Melton Fire Brigade and self-described ‘red-truck rev-head’, spent last Sunday moving from stall to stall capturing the lively atmosphere at the event as exhibitors took up the chance to talk up their projects. Additional images taken by CFA's Keith Pakenham.
For project managers working intensively – often over many years – to get their project over the line, this was all about showcasing their ‘baby’ amongst like-minded colleagues while working out where knowledge could be shared to advantage.
CFA members, many travelling in with their families from far-flung areas of the state, made the most of the opportunity to see the latest in vehicles, equipment, technology, training and health programs. Interactive exhibits included wildfire Burns table demonstrations from the mobile training props team, free health checks, a giant jenga ‘Mental Health Tower’ game and infra-red camera displays from DEPI’s Aerial Intelligence Gathering project.
With their annual general meeting scheduled at the same venue, attendees included a large contingent of Volunteer Fire Brigade members.
