Chance for close-up look at an emergency
SPECTATORS will be able to get a close-up look at the Tweed's emergency services in action next month at a massive land, sea and air demonstration.
Held at Jack Evans Boat Harbour as part of the Tweed River Festival, the rescue will feature 18 local emergency service groups including police, ambulance, surf clubs, rescue helicopter and the Volunteer Marine Rescue working to save people adrift in a life raft.
Hosted by Point Danger's Volunteer Marine Rescue, it will also feature a street parade of emergency vehicles, displays and public education campaigns.
VMR spokesperson John Gnech said the demonstration would give people the chance to understand how the various emergency services work.
"It is also a chance for people to see what is available if they want to volunteer and help out the community," he said.
The land, sea and air spectacular will be held at the Jack Evans Boat Harbour on November 21 from 9am.
