S.A.V.E Emergency Services Day

29/08/2017
​As part of Upper Coomera State College’s ongoing commitment to our student’s welfare, all Year 11 and Year 12 students will be participating in the S.A.V.E Emergency Services program host by the Queensland Police Service which will be held at the school on Wednesday 13 September, from 8:40 am to 2:40 pm.  There will be no normal classes running on this day. Year 11 & 12 teachers will supervise students at the Sports Centre all day.

Time 8:40am. Students arriving early will receive a light breakfast from 8:15am
Venue UCSC Sports Centre
Transport Nil needed

Other information A hat and water bottle is recommended as students will outside for some activities throughout the day.  Lunch will be provided for one lunch break only.  Students must bring their own morning tea.
 
Throughout the day students will participate in sessions run by various emergency services and groups including the Qld Ambulance, Qld Fire and Rescue, Qld Police, Gold Coast City Council Disaster Management and Surf Life Saving Qld. These sessions will cover a range of important issues facing young people including road safety, road accident and injury, CPR, staying safe at schoolies, surf safety, flood dangers and drugs/alcohol.  
 
This event will be compulsory for all students in Year 11 and 12 in 2017.  There will also be students attending this event from Assissi College and the Australian Industry Trade College.  Photographs and video footage of students participating in the program will be taken during the day by the College and representatives from the presenting organisations.  These images may be used for future promotion of similar programs and in newsletters/websites/social media of the organisations attending.
 
Students will be exposed to a traffic vehicle accident scene where pre-selected students will participate as passengers in the vehicle and the fire brigade will be demonstrating how patients are cut from a vehicle wreckage. This role play will include the undertaker removing a deceased body and the ambulance transporting another to hospital, with police arresting the driver for traffic offences. This role play is dynamic and plans to educate with high impact the consequences of young drivers who choose to make the wrong decisions behind the wheel.  Students will be given the opportunity to speak with the emergency services crews and be significantly briefed afterwards about prevention of road accidents.  The school’s guidance officer and other student welfare staff will be on hand to talk to any students who may need support before, during or after the presentation.
