Emergency services field exercise at Port of Bundaberg

AN EMERGENCY services field exercise is being conducted at the Port of Bundaberg on Thursday.

The aim of this exercise is to test the joint capabilities of police, fire brigade, SES and ambulance services, and other partner agencies, in response to a major incident at the Port of Bundaberg.

These types of exercises are conducted frequently and allow each agency to also test their own training and equipment.

The exercise will start at 9am and should finish about 1pm.

Residents and motorists should not be concerned by any large contingency of emergency service staff or vehicles at Burnett Heads.

Some motorists and pedestrians in the Burnett Heads area, particularly near the Port of Bundaberg, may encounter minor delays or detours on the Thursday morning as part of this important exercise.

Emergency services wish to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
