Emergency Services Day held in Kalgoorlie

As part of National Road Safety Week, The Kalgoorlie-Boulder RoadWise Committee held an Emergency Services Day at Centennial Park in Kalgoorlie.

St John Ambulance took the lead and organised a car crash simulation with the volunteer fire brigade and State Emergency Services (SES) and also held first aid demonstrations.

A running commentary was provided for the community who attended, encouraging all to consider speed, fatigue and driver distraction and also to know basic first aid and what to do at a road crash.

The Goldfields-Esperance Towards Zero Road Safety Display Trailer was set up alongside the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Local Drug Action Group, where volunteers were able to speak with community and provide information about safe driving practices.

Face painting and a jumping castle helped entertain the young children whilst volunteers from all the agencies spoke with parents about being safe on the roads.

Positive feedback was received from all in attendance and the RoadWise Committee and St John Ambulance agreed to make it an annual road safety event and training opportunity for all emergency services personnel.
