Hunter Valley Police District to take part in third Singleton Emergency Service Expo

SINGLETON’S emergency services will come together this weekend to showcase their exceptional skill sets for the third consecutive year.

The Singleton Emergency Services Expo – to take place at Townhead Park between 9am and noon on Saturday, March 16 – is hosting a wide variety of organisations, including NSW Police.

Officers from Hunter Valley Police District, NSW SES, NSW Fire and Rescue, NSW Ambulance, NSW Rural Fire Service, Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service, Local Lands and Council, NSW Mines Rescue, The Salvation Army, The Red Cross and Singleton Council will be in attendance.

The expo provides the local community with the unique opportunity to meet and greet their services, ask questions, and gather important information regarding safety.

There will be demonstrations of coordinated multi-agency responses to incidents, showcasing the capacity of local police working with various other emergency services.

Hunter Valley Police District’s Inspector Joanne Schultz is looking forward to meeting residents on the day.

“This event is a great chance to build relationships with members of the Singleton community,” she said.

“And, we invite all to come down for a chat.

“There’ll be plenty to do for the kids, as well as displays of how police coordinate with various other emergency services when responding to emergencies.

“The nature of our role rarely leaves room for friendly conversations with the people we help, so we’re excited for the chance to shed light on what we do in a positive environment.”
