Here’s your chance to meet unsung community heroes at the Moreton Bay Emergency Services Expo on April 22 at Woodford.

The free event is on this weekend from 9am-1pm at Woodford Showgrounds, 38 Neurum Rd.

Groups which will be represented include Australian Red Cross, Moreton Bay Regional Council Disaster Management Team, Queensland Ambulance Service (Woodford Ambulance Station), Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES), Queensland Police Service, RACQ Traffic response, RACQ LifeFlight Rescue, Rural Fire Service, Scouts Queensland, SES – Moreton Bay unit, TMR and VMR Bribie Island.

There will be plenty to see and do with the Rural Fire Service holding fire hose spraying demonstrations all day, a QFES road crash demonstration at 10.30am during which the team will cut open a car to rescue a victim, and CPR training all day by QAS.

Visitors can also take part in a range of educational activities and watch other demonstrations throughout the day, so they can learn about the region’s emergency services and how to best prepare for disasters.

There will also be free face painting and food trucks offering items for purchase.

The Moreton Bay Emergency Services Expo will be a highlight of the year for anyone interested in emergency services and community safety.
