Starting the day by meeting many of the local SES members, the youth group were then treated to some SES trivia to test their knowledge.

Community engagement officer, Simone Burrows said “using trivia is a great way to get the children to really think about the messages the SES is trying to send.”

“Most of the time they already know what we are teaching them, they just don't realise,” Simone said.

And of course, the group were able to experience the broad range of outdoor activities SES members perform on a regular basis.

“The volunteers of the organisation don't just give their time in an emergency,” Simone said.

“They put themselves out there for days like this to help educate the community.

“Being prepared is key. The more prepared and educated the youth of our community are, the more resilient they will be.”
