At CDC Victoria, community safety is at the forefront of our values, and we are always on the lookout for opportunities to support our community. Recently, we collaborated with Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV) in a remarkable initiative that exemplifies our commitment to safety.
A Lifesaving Partnership
FRV is known for its heroic efforts in responding to emergencies, accidents, and disasters. They are the brave men and women who stand ready to protect and save lives in our communities. Recognising the vital role they play, CDC Victoria contributed to their training by donating a total of four buses to FRV for training purposes. These buses would become a critical asset in preparing FRV crews for the challenging task of responding to motor vehicle accidents involving heavy vehicles like buses.
Real-Life Simulation for Real-Life Heroes
FRV, with our donated buses, conducted a live simulation drill that simulated a motor vehicle accident. This exercise was far from ordinary; it was a crucial training opportunity that allowed FRV crews to practice extraction techniques, emergency medical procedures, and more in a real-life setting.
The use of an actual bus, rather than a simulated or scaled-down version, was a game-changer for the FRV crew. It provided them with hands-on experience, ensuring they were well-prepared to respond swiftly and effectively in the event of a real accident.
Commitment to Community Safety
We are immensely proud to be part of this exceptional cause. With this partnership, we not only supported the training for FRV but also gave a second life to our buses after they completed the contract years.
Supporting organisations like FRV and witnessing our assets being used for such a critical purpose reaffirms our commitment towards community safety.
We extend our deepest gratitude to Fire Rescue Victoria for their dedication and heroism.
