Perth Motorplex holds Safety in the highest regard so with this in mind, Objectives and Achievements obtained from Emergency Response Safety training were as follows;

  • To make aware of crew duties and responsibilities.
  • To ensure that crew possess the skill of Fire & Rescue and to perform with Competency.
  • To promote and secure health, safety and welfare of Crew.
  • To assist in securing a safe work environment.
  • To reduce, eliminate and control hazards to which the Crew are exposed at work.
  • To promote education awareness on matters relating to Fire & Rescue.

The Emergency Response team members conducted the ‘hands on’ practice using a variety of functions with several jaws of life and spreaders. The crew performed several scenarios of extracting smashed vehicles and all scenarios were carried out competently along with the correct use of the Robinson tool – known as the Hooligan tool and Glasscutter for cutting windscreens.
