SES State Rescue Challenge 2015Held every second year, the State Rescue challenge is a gruelling two-day event with teams facing a number of realistic emergency situations and rescue scenarios.

A number of teams from across the state took part in the competition which was held on 16th and 17th May 2015 at the South Australian Country Fire Service State Training Centre.

This year's scenarios included a mass casualty exercise involving a place crash, extricating a dummy trapped between two cars, using sandbags to protect evidence at a crime scene and an evidence search inside a blacked out building.
