THEY are the emergency services teams you don't want to meet under tragic circumstances, but when they come together next month for an expo, you'll want to be hearing what they have to say.
A Meet the Emergency Services day will be held at the Sunshine Coast Stadium in Kawana on Saturday, October 15 from 11-3.30pm.
Expo team leader Sharon Fulwood said it would bring together personnel from the police, SES, rural fire brigade, rural fire and rescue, ambulance, coast guard, volunteer marine rescue, red cross, urban search and rescue, surf life saving, PCYC cadets and wildlife warriors.
She said there would be a range of live demonstrations of crash and emergency simulations, skill sessions including knot tying and tarping a roof, testing your ability as a safe driver with an onsite simulator including beer goggles and a drug impairment program.
"There is so, so much on, that it's hard to explain, but we just want people to turn up and see,” Ms Fulwood said.
"We've got recurring demonstrations like CPR, and information on what you do if you've been evacuated.”
With a sniffer dog booked in and a kitchen fire display Ms Fulwood said there was important information for all.
She said event organisers were targeting families with young children, teenagers and those in the high risk age of 16-24.
Children will be entertained with face painting, a jumping castle and a competition where you receive a passport and have to go to a number of stalls to receive stamps.
Once you collect them all you can win prizes.
