Rescue services showcase their skills

BUNNINGS Warehouse in South Grafton looked like the scene of an emergency on Saturday.

Crews from the State Emergency Service, Rural Fire Service, Nymboida Wilderness Rescue Team, Police and Fire Brigade converged on the hardware store for a showcase of rescue services.

Aimed at increasing community awareness, the crews put on displays throughout the day.

Bunnings Grafton's activities organiser Toni Kearney is a member of the RFS and Nymboida rescue team and arranged the day to give people a chance to meet the crews and show their appreciation.

"These people really deserve to be recognised," Ms Kearney said.

"Imagine how much trouble we would be in without these people to look after us."

A free jumping castle and slushies kept the kids busy.
