Queensland Museum has opened a new exhibition showcasing many aspects of emergency rescue.
Director of public engagement Jillian Marsh said the activities and exhibits at Rescue were very hands on.
“There are fifteen interactive exhibits,” Ms Marsh said.
“You can do everything from flying an air helicopter (or) … there is a small smoke room that you have to escape
“(There is a) climbing wall where people can tests their skills if they were involved in a vertical building scenario.”
The exhibition also includes a jet ski installation to show how jet skis are used in surf life saving.
The event is being held at the Sciencentre until 7 February.
Ms Marsh said the exhibition was created in conjunction with Surf life Saving Australia, Sea Rescue Australia and a range of emergency services departments.
The exhibition is promoting the advances in technology of rescue facilities and procedures.
