Remote Area Firefighting Teams packed light but were well prepared for a weekend of skill building.
Remote Area Firefighting Teams were tested when they were picked up by a helicopter and left at a remote property where they completed several tasks, such as clearing ground for a helipad, and camped for the night just as they would if tasked to a real fire.
The structure fire scenario required crews to ventilate a burning structure.
The Incident Management Team controlled planning, logistics and operations for the event.
The Incident Controller and Deputy Incident Controller prepare to brief 300 firefighters before the scenarios start around Glen Innes.
