Structure Fire - Greenway

ACT Fire & Rescue (ACTF&R) firefighters are conducting ventilation operations at a seniors’ living village in Greenway.

A wheat bag warming in the microwave was found to be the source of a burning smell and smoke in a kitchen.

ACT Ambulance Service paramedics attended and assessed one occupant for smoke inhalation.

ACTF&R is reminding all Canberrans to heat wheat bags strictly in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

The ACT State Emergency Service has welcomed 70 new recruits into units across Canberra

The ACT State Emergency Service has welcomed 70 new recruits into units across Canberra

70 new volunteers will join the ACT State Emergency Service (ACTSES) in time for the 2020-21 storm season.

The new recruits are prepared with the knowledge to be first responders to incidents involving floods and storms, as well as provide crucial support to other emergency services.

The current La Niña Alert predicts wetter conditions across the capital this season, which may see the volunteers’ newfound skills in storm and water damage, land-based floodwater rescue, safety and first aid well utilised.

As a result of the new cohort comprising of 32 women, ages ranging from 18-70, and the range of backgrounds – the service was commended on its diversity within the Agency.

The new faces will join nearly 400 everyday Canberrans volunteering with the service.

ACT Ambulance Service paramedic takes top spot at the National Rotary Emergency Services Community Awards

ACT Ambulance Service paramedic takes top spot at the National Rotary Emergency Services Community Awards

Intensive care paramedic, Susith Adikari, was the National Winner at Rotary Emergency Services Community Awards in a ceremony at Government House yesterday.

Susith has been a paramedic with ACT Ambulance Service (ACTAS) for 13 years and was nominated for his altruistic commitment to protecting the community - notably during the British Columbia Bushfires (Canada) in 2017 and more recently, the 2019-20 bushfire season in Canberra.

Along with his duty as a paramedic with the ACT Ambulance Service, Susith is passionate about disseminating the wealth of knowledge and experience he has acquired over the years to help develop the next crop of graduate paramedics for ACT.

The National Rotary Emergency Services Community Awards is an initiative of the Rotary Districts and Clubs of NSW and ACT, which aims to acknowledge and celebrate selfless Community Service of Emergency Services personnel.

We’re proud to have dedicated first responders like Susith in our community
