Dallas Hinrichsen, an active member of the emergency response team at New Acland Mine was first on scene to a horrible car/bus traffic accident.

Lucky Dallas has the confidence to apply the skills he had recently learnt through completing his ‘Certificate III in Mine Emergency Response and Rescue RII30715’ through us, Allens Training with Emergency Risk Management QLD Pty Ltd, one of our partner companies.

The training he completed covered a number of rescue and emergency topics including advanced first aid, participate in a rescue operation, undertake road crash rescue, respond to local emergencies and a number of other relatable topics.   

What a courageous act this was from Mr Hinrichsen, this is what the training that we offer and the experiences we supply our students is all about.

The Chronical reports that Mr Hinrichsen stated "The training simply kicked in and I went to work,", "Before doing the course I would have taken one look and thought - nope, I can't do this. But the training has given me the confidence and skills to be able to jump in and do what is needed."

Mr Hinrichsen said doing the Certificate III Mine Emergency Response and Rescue was the best thing he has ever done and being a part of the Emergency Response Team at New Acland was a natural fit.

"The training has given me so much confidence not only when it comes to emergency situations but also in my day to day job," Mr Hinrichsen said.

"I'm always telling my work mates to look for opportunities to increase their knowledge and skills."

This year Mr Hinrichsen's dedication to his training saw him become a regional finalist in the State Government Training Awards and captain the New Acland team to victory in the Southern Region Mines Rescue Challenge last month.
