Hunter Quarries engaged in a mammoth task of gaining extension of hours to crush and supplying Class 2 Armour Rock to Central Coast Council to protect coastal erosion.
Information sharing and fact-finding mission
This will assist the RFS to better understand quarry site layouts and operations, as well as assist in preparations for fire-fighting and emergency management.
Three Category 1 Tanker Trucks, 17 crew and Group Captains took a tour of the site, taking note of both hazards and opportunities – including the potential to utilise water in quarry dams for fire-fighting.
This mutually beneficial visit proved eye opening for both Hunter Quarries and the RFS. Thanks to RFS Mid Coast and RFS Lower Hunter.
As part of the recent review of our Emergency Management Control Plan and as per our legislative obligations and best practice, Hunter Quarries consulted with the local NSW Rural Fire Service to ensure our Emergency Preparedness is tested, and that our systems are up to date and work seamlessly should an event arise.
