Northern Australian Emergency Response Competition

The Northern Australian Emergency Response Competition (NAERC) plays an integral part in emergency response training. 

The competition gives teams the opportunity to test their skills in the field through simulated emergency situations. 

These scenarios are designed to be the closest teams will get to the real thing, while putting teams under the pressure of being judged by seasoned professional adjudicators and watched by their peers, colleagues, family and the general public.

Throughout the course of the event teams receive a 'call to response' and will face challenges under the disciplines of; Fire Fighting, First-Aid, Rope Rescue, BA Search and Rescue, Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) and Road Accident Rescue.
 
The NAERC motto is ‘The minute saved through practice is the minute needed to save a life’, and the event gives teams an excellent opportunity to test their training and response capabilities under pressure in preparation for real-life emergency events.
 

NAERC 2019 will be held in Darwin from 31 May – 2 June supported by our partners Kirkland Lake Gold, Charles Darwin University and ERGT.
