Western Sydney Parklands

Read more about the event here...

What a great way to start off the year of rogaining. Our first event of 2019 is the, now traditional, 3 hour minigaine which will be held in the Western Sydney Parklands.

More details about the event will follow shortly, but it's time to start training for this event which is only 9 weeks after Christmas.

This is a three hour event, so you can enter it alone, or with a team of up to 5 people.

Emergency+

Rogainers with smart phones are encouraged to install the following app on their smart phones and carry them during events.

This Emergency+ app has been developed for Australia’s Triple Zero Awareness Working Group. When activated, the app displays current GPS coordinates. This knowledge could be very useful in a variety of rescue and support situations. No mobile coverage is required to display GPS coordinates.

The app is available in the app stores for Android, Apple and Windows devices.

Emergency+ App

Triple Zero (000) is Australia's primary emergency service number and should be used if urgent emergency assistance is required from either police, fire, or ambulance services.

Australia also has two secondary emergency service numbers that only work with particular technologies:

  • 112 is the GSM international standard emergency number which can only be dialled on a digital mobile phone (Some international model phones cannot dial "000").
  • 106 is the text-based emergency number for people who are deaf, or who have a hearing or speech impairment. This service operates using a textphone (TTY) or a computer with modem access.

BSAR remote first aid

Bush Search and Rescue

If you are keen to get some first aid skills, with a focus on remote area first aid, then you should check out the courses offered by the Bush Search and Rescue NSW - they run these courses that are, by all accounts, great.

Remember too that if you have been a major volunteer at a NSWRA event then you can claim $100 towards the cost of a first-aid course - like this one - rather than getting a free event entry!
