Welcome

We all hear about the big emergencies, fires, floods, and wind but the little emergencies along with the people who devote their time to help their community seem to get lost in the sensationalism of today's journalism.The Emergency Services Report focuses on the emergencies that matter to you and your neighbour everyday, the children and animals left in cars, the elderly without air-conditioning in a heat wave, the routine of fire prevention as well as paying homage to all the organisations that are there to combat the big and small  emergencies.It is the same local SES or fire crew that digs out the family cat stuck in a pipe that response to the 100 year flood and the services that support us in our hour of need are predominantly volunteers or government funded. The "Emergency Services Report" has been created to assist preservation of life in any situation by offering useful tips and information. Simple, yet essential skills and knowledge can preserve life, protect a casualty and possibly prevent a potential life threatening accident - knowledge which no parent, partner, motorist or workmate can do without.
