20/04/2015 - SES Assist with Water Bomber trials

Water Bomber Trial Drops

SES Volunteers assisted with Water Bomber operations at  Serpentine airfield during air-drop trials on Tuesday 14th April 2015 . SES volunteers from South Perth - Canning and Kalamunda attended, collecting & measuring water samples in order to access the effectiveness of varying drop heights & forward speeds.

It was a good day (0700 - 1630), hard work, lots of walking & bending/kneeling down, but worthwhile. DFES provided their normal splendid lunch.
