SES members perform a forensic search on their hands and knees

Kingaroy SES hosted a Landsearch Course at the weekend, training members in all aspects of searching, including forensic searching and preserving incident scenes.

A total of 30 members participated, coming from Kingaroy, Kumbia, Nanango, Wondai, Murgon, Goomeri and Biggenden, demonstrating how unified regional SES is in both its training and emergency response.

The training was conducted in and around the Carroll Nature Reserve in Kingaroy.

The terrain proved quite challenging for both day time and night time searches conducted in that area.

Some of the local SES members who took part in the weekend Landsearch course welcomes reports from community groups about their activities. We invite any interested group to submit their reports to us by emailing them to

Reports should be written in Microsoft Word and any photographs submitted should be high-resolution and in .JPG format.

Please also include a contact phone number in case we need to clarify anything with you. We reserve the right to edit reports.
