RACQ CapRescue, in partnership with Santos GLNG, annually host an emergency training exercise on Curtis Island at the LNG facility.
Together with Queensland Police Service and Queensland Fire and Emergency Service, the collaborative training exercise simulates a serious incident which is designed to ensure that the appropriate skills and emergency response procedures are in place to appropriately manage a real event if it was to occur.
Santos GLNG Production Manager, Rohan Richardson, said that the annual training exercise provided practical training for all involved.
“Santos GLNG values the importance of being prepared and understands how working as one team is vital when it comes to safety, especially in emergency situations,” Rohan said.
“The annual training exercise showcases the landing of the Capricorn Helicopter and how site personnel, emergency services and medical crews work together for critical care and the evacuation of a seriously injured person.”
The decade-long partnership between RACQ CapRescue and Santos GLNG was formed in 2011 at the commencement of Project construction. The ongoing financial support ensures this vital lifesaving aeromedical service continues to operate not only for Industry usage but also for the community.
This invaluable aeromedical search and rescue service covers an area of over 350,000km2 which is home to approximately 300,000 people.
