Queensland firefighters attend over 8000 road crashes each year.
QFES responds to motor vehicle crashes and uses a range of rescue tools to free trapped people. We also provide assistance to ambulance officers to treat patients at the scene, and restore the scene so that it is safe again.

- Look and listen
- Stay calm
- Merge left
- Stay alert.
