16 Aug 2016 – Coal mining industry showcases its first aid focus

Thrown from their motorcycle, two riders lay strewn across the backyard of a home after crashing heavily through a fence during a wild police chase. Met with groans of pain and one man with an amputated limb, responders rapidly jumped to action.

The confronting emergency scenario signalled the start of the Coal Services First Aid Competition at Newcastle Mines Rescue station on Friday 12 August 2016.
