Weekend Wrap Up
Posted on June 23rd, 2020
22/06/20 – It’s been quite the weekend for our Rescue 300 crew after responding to two tasks within a few hours of each other on Saturday.
It is not known why the beacon activated, though it was disabled by the crew and reported to the
Australian Maritime Safety Authority – AMSAin Canberra. It’s a timely reminder to check and make sure your boating safety equipment is serviced and within used by dates given this beacon expired in January 2020.
Shortly after returning to base, Rescue 300 was tasked by
Queensland Healthin response to a female in their thirties who had fallen from the back of a utility vehicle moving at low speed. Suffering a suspected collarbone fracture, the patient was airlifted to Rockhampton Hospital in a stable condition.
