A new online program has been launched to put vital training information at the fingertips of Australia's State and Territory Emergency Services (SES).
Created by Web technology firm Unique World, it allows more than 5,000 SES trainers to download information on training techniques and procedures for more than 53,000 emergency services volunteers.
"We did workshops with emergency services in each state to get a feel for how they wanted to operate and that proved to be a big task in itself," said Eddie Geller, Unique World's CEO.
"The program will introduce big print and distribution cost savings and will mean the latest information is accessible instantly from anywhere in Australia or around the world.
"SES finished testing the site a month ago and it is now being rolled out Australia-wide. We are very proud of the project and will get reviews from SES in six to 12 months. Hopefully, it will be a big success."
Particularly useful for volunteers located in remote rural areas, the program is one of the first .Net solutions in Australia that enables trainers to share information and knowledge from any location.
"In the past, chances are that information would often be out of date by the time it got to some rural areas. Now trainers can make changes when necessary and publish a new version immediately," Geller added.
This is the first .Net program launched by Unique World but it is currently working on several others.
