OPERATION RESCUE - The Sunshine Coast's VERY FIRST emergency services day!

When: Sunday June 1, 2008 from 10am-2pm.
Where: Stockland Park (formerly Quad Park), Nicklin Way, Kawana.
Entry is via a gold coin donation

Operation Rescue will showcase each of the Sunshine Coast's emergency services in a one day extravaganza at Stockland Park on Sunday June 1, from 10am-2pm.

It will be a fantastic opportunity for young and old alike to come face to face with our very own local heroes, who go out of their way, and risk their own lives everyday in order to make the Sunshine Coast a safe place to live.

Come and meet rescues who's who at Operation Rescue:

• The Queensland Ambulance Service
• The Queensland Police Service
• The Queensland Fire and Rescue Service
• The Australian Volunteer Coast Guard
• The State Emergency Service
• Energex Community Rescue Helicopter
• Queensland Lifesaving

Expect awesome demonstrations from each of the services, as well as static displays, food vendors and children's rides galore.

The fire and police services' mascots, Blazer the koala bear and Donut the dog will make an appearance too!

Thrill-seeker Sami Muirhead from popular radio station HOT 91 will skydive into the event, courtesy of Sunshine Coast Skydivers Caloundra, too, and one lucky listener will have the opportunity to win a chance to leap into Operation Rescue as well!

A great raffle is up for grabs too, with first place winning a tandem skydive
