Live demonstrations by Dumbleyung VFRS and Wagin SES were well received with approximately 50 people attending the re-enactments.
Recreating a rolled vehicle and trapped victim the Dumbleyung VRFS were able to explain the process and role of volunteers and rescue services. The demonstration took 30 minutes and attendees were able to see the volunteers rescue the victim safely with the Jaws of Life.
The Wagin SES also attended the event and provided a demonstration of their new piece of equipment, a Mule Wheel. A Mule Wheel is a new version of the traditional stretcher which helps volunteers and rescue services move/transport victims, with some locals lucky to give it a try.
New members are always welcome to the Dumbleyung VFRS. If your interested contact Skye on 0458 547 967 or attend a monthly meeting held the second Monday of each month at 6pm.
