For a number of years volunteers and staff from the Queensland Fire and Emergency Service (QFES) have been using Watts Bridge Memorial Airfield as a training ground to improve and test their skills at establishing an airbase.
On the 3rd and 4th August 2019, a number of volunteers from across the South East Region established an airbase at Watts Bridge to reinforce the pre-deployment and operational strategies employed by QFES.
Watts Bridge is proud to be associated with the QFES training and stands ready to support the local community, should a natural disaster such as fire or other emergency ever confront the district.
