Last weekend CREST members from Newcastle, Central Coast and Sydney provided safety communications for the Kathmandu Adventure Series event at Glenrock State Conservation Reserve near Newcastle NSW.
The weekend consisted of two separate identical events on each day. In parallel with the first day, CREST undertook a training exercise. The exercise focussed on the installation of a field communications network. CREST members set up a VHF repeater and VHF / UHF crossband system to cover the course.
During record high temperatures the team assisted by arranging two ambulances to transport patients attended to by the on-site paramedics.
