The Region 2 Field Day included several exercises - Pumping, Hazardous materials, Driving, gas fires, Road Crash Rescue, and Incident Management. The Incident Management exercise featured a very unique set up. Crews had a scale model of a small township, which actually exists within the Balaklava CFS response area. Crews were faced with a fire in that area, with changing wind conditions, a moving fire, lack of water and other features of a real incident. Crews then had to deal with the incident, with a focus on radio communications and coordination of resources, while plotting the incident on the model.

The day was hosted by the Wakefield Plains CFS Group, with assistance from other Emergency Services - including State Emergency Service (SES), St John Ambulance, SA Police and the Salvation Army's Catering vehicle
