Emergency Services

From the red dirt of the outback to the palm-fringed tropical coast, North Queensland, Australia, is a unique place with unique challenges for its emergency services. Putting on the uniform means facing anything from floods and cyclones to traffic crashes and trauma. The Emergency Services series explores some of those challenges, through the lives of the coppers, ambos, and firies who rise to meet them every day, and the relationships that develop between them along the way.
