Northern Australian Emergency Response Competition

The Northern Australian Emergency Response Competition plays an integral part in emergency response training.  The competition gives teams the opportunity to test their learned skills in the field through simulated emergency situations.  

The scenarios are designed to be the closest teams will get to the real thing, whilst putting the teams under the pressure of being judged by seasoned professional adjudicators and watched by their peers, colleagues, family and the general public.

Throughout the course of the event Teams will receive a 'call to response' and will face challenges under the disciplines of; Fire Fighting, First-Aid, Rope Rescue, BA Search and Rescue, Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) and Road Accident Rescue.  The competition will conclude with the presentation of over 15 awards at the Official Awards Dinner.  

Expressions of interest for participating teams are currently being called for prior to scheduling the next event.
