EMERGENCY services were called to a truck rollover on the Gingkin Road, Edith at 5.30pm on Monday, February 5.

The driver was able to extricate himself from the vehicle, but a number of cattle were trapped and required rescuing by State Emergency Service members.

Emergency services were called to an accident on the Abercrombie Road on Friday, February 2 at 11.15am.

SES personnel removed four doors of a vehicle to help with the removal of two patients who were airlifted to Liverpool Hospital.

At the end of January, Oberon SES members were activated after a personal locator beacon (PLB) was set off in the vicinity of Mount Cloudmaker in the Kanangra-Boyd National Park.

SES members set up a field headquarters at Kanangra-Boyd car park and a paramedic was winched in.

The solo bushwalker was winched out from Dex Creek.

SES members said anyone planning to go walking in the Kanangra-Boyd National Park, or any national park, should let relatives know where they are heading and take a PLB device with them.

A PLB is your lifeline when lost in the wilderness, SES members said.
