We are the South Australian Fire and Emergency Services Commission (SAFECOM).Every year, thousands of emergency services workers and volunteers attend incidents throughout the State - putting out fires, rescuing people, conducting searches, freeing people from trapped cars, helping contain chemical spills, dealing with storm damage and much more.
A review of the emergency services sector was initiated in 2002 by the then Minister for Emergency Services, the Hon Patrick Conlon MP to review the governance arrangements of the emergency services. As part of its focus on gaining efficiencies within the sector, SAFECOM has embarked on several reviews and initiatives.
A Disaster or Emergency can be defined as a serious disruption to the functioning of a community or a society caused by widespread human, material, economic or environmental losses which exceeds the ability of the affected community or society to cope using its own resources.
Emergency Management involves the organisation and management of resources and responsibilities to deal with all aspects of emergencies across prevention, preparedness, response and recovery. The Emergency Management Act 2004 identifies the South Australia Police as the coordinating agency for all emergencies. For example, whilst the Control Agency is taking action to combat the hazard and protect life and property, the Coordinating Agency is coordinating the broader support functions provided by Functional Services such as logistics support, media, medical services and relief measures such as Emergency Relief Centres and temporary accommodation. Throughout the State, private farm fire units provide assistance during rural fires to the CFS, by supplying local information and support.
CFS crews will also assist the MedStar crews when a retrieval is required of a casualty from a Road Crash. CFS crews working with the SA Metropolitan Fire Service, SA Police and the SA Ambulance Service at a hazardous material spill in Port Augusta.
In April 1955 Prime Minister Robert Menzies announced that Australian forces would be part of the newly formed British Commonwealth Far East Strategic Reserve (BCFESR). Between 1955 and 1960 Royal Australian Navy aircraft carriers Melbourne and Sydney, and the destroyers and frigates Anzac, Arunta, Quadrant, Queenborough, Quiberon, Quickmatch, Tobruk, Vampire, Vendetta, Voyager, and Warramunga were attached to the BCFESR for periods of up to six months.
Australian warships in the BCFESR were directly involved in the Malayan Emergency on two occasions.

The Australian Army was involved in the Malayan Emergency from 1955, and Australian soldiers remained in the region until 1963, three years after the conflicta€™s official end. The 2nd Battalion, the Royal Australian Regiment (2 RAR) arrived in Malaya in October 1955.

The private units have a capability of putting out hotspots and asset protection, as well as controlling running grass fires. Having seen action in the Second World War, both vessels were modernised in the early 1950s and converted to a mainly anti-submarine role. These Australian ships took part in patrols and exercises with other Commonwealth vessels throughout the Far East region. On 29 September 1956 Anzac bombarded a guerrilla camp site, and on 22 January 1957 Queenborough and Quickmatch opened fire against suspected guerrilla positions south of Johore.
Above the aircraft carrier Melbourne are the destroyers Tobruk and Anzac, and the frigates Queenborough and Quickmatch are in the foreground. A Daimler Ferret armoured car has accompanied the patrol to its setting-off point in a rubber plantation. Stationed initially on Penang Island, the battalion crossed to the mainland on 1 January 1956 to begin operations as part of the 28th Commonwealth Brigade.
The parade was organised to celebrate the official end of the Malayan Emergency and the victory of the Commonwealth forces over the communist guerrillas.

On the far left is Lieutenant Robert Fletcher whose notebook for Operation Rubber Legs appears here. After training at Johore in southern Malaya, 3 RAR began patrolling operations in Perak and Kedah. On its tour of duty 1 RAR conducted patrols in northern Malaya, sometimes crossing the border into Thailand in order to follow communist guerrillas and drive them back into Malaya.

This pocket book was issued as an aide-memoire to the 2nd Battalion, Royal Australian Regimenta€™s platoon commanders during the Emergency. Lieutenant Robert Fletchera€™s notebook containing his notes based on the operation order for Operation Rubber Legs which took place from 23 February to 7 March 1957. In mid 1955 Arunta and Warramunga became the first Australian warships to be attached to the newly formed British Commonwealth Far East Strategic Reserve.


All ships were part of the British Commonwealth Far East Strategic Reserve, while Anzac, Queenborough, and Quickmatch took part in the Malayan Emergency, firing on communist positions. The battalion mainly operated in the northern areas of Kedah and Perak, which had been centres of guerrilla activity. Wild Dog did not survive the Malayan Emergency; he often chased vehicles a€“ at one stage he even knocked a motorcyclist over a€“ and was ultimately killed by a British truck in 1957. The notes include brief, but interesting, details of the operation, setting out methods of resupply, the area of operations, the ways in which infantry would work with aircraft and the rules of engagement. Patrolling in search of guerrillas was the main task of the Australian Army during the Malayan Emergency. Although there were few contacts with the guerrillas when the battalion patrolled these areas, heavy fighting took place in June 1956 during the Pipeline Ambush, in which three Australians were killed. Replacing 1 RAR, 2 RAR returned for a second tour of duty in October 1961 and carried out patrols in Perlis and Kedah.
This booklet sets out very clearly how they were to be conducted and the parameters of what was permitted during these searches. It is an interesting glimpse into the planning that lay behind these complex operations and the way in which that planning was distilled into a series of notes by those who would be commanding men on the ground.
One of the guerrillas killed in the latter operation was found to have taken part in the infamous assassination of the British High Commissioner in 1951. The clearest indication of the battaliona€™s success came in April 1959 when the British announced that the state of Perak was secure.
The Australian Armya€™s involvement in Malaya ended when 2 RAR returned to Australia in August 1963.
Sixteen communist camps were discovered in the operation along with a quantity of weapons, ammunition and a major communist arms workshop.
