Ex Vanuatu Alliance - enhancing emergency response (1.2 mins)

The Australian Defence Force (ADF) is taking part in Exercise VANUATU ALLIANCE 2019, aiming to enhance the ability of the Vanuatu Police Force (VPF) to respond to natural disasters. Small Australian Army training teams have been exchanging knowledge with the VPF in logistics, operation of small boats, field communications, first aid, rescue techniques and integration with other Vanuatu Government and Non-Government organisations. Additional cooperative training was conducted with the Vanuatu Fire Service, as well as both nations’ mechanics assisting with the repair of vehicles and machinery. Exercise VANUATU ALLIANCE is a three-day field training phase, where the VPF plan and react to a simulated natural disaster scenario.
