Please don't be alarmed if you see a lot of emergency services crews on the lake near Marmong Point tomorrow morning (Tuesday morning) - it's a training exercise.
Fire and Rescue NSW 464 Toronto
will be joined by the RFS, Marine Rescue Lake Macquarie
, Water Police and Maritime for emergency service training. The training will simulate fires aboard two vessels (with flares and smoke coming from a smoke machine, not a real fire). One boat will be set adrift, with emergency vessels then tasked with placing booms around it.
The exercise is expected to run from 9am to midday.
So, don't panic, it's just our awesome emergency services honing their skills!
