This weekend WICEN is supporting Project Wittenoom, evidently randomly named, with nothing to do with asbestos mining. This is the large scale, multi-agency search for missing Cessna VH-MDX in the Barrington Tops.

WICEN has received an invitation from its sister sister squad, Cave Rescue, to have a small team participate in their multi agency exercise being held on November 9 & 10 in the Jenolan Caves area. WICEN's involvement would not include entering the cave, only the provision of some surface communications.
