Cockburn SES welcomes new members

Cockburn SES are having their final intake night of the year this Monday 15 October from 7pm, at our new base on the corner of Poletti Road and Buckley Street in Cockburn Central.

The intake night is a chance for potential new members to come and check us out, have a chat about what we do, and hopefully apply to join up. It’s a brief, friendly, low-key event: a chat, a tour and a light supper. To register, call Drew on 0409 688 973.

For those who join up on Monday night, an all-day Induction Course will be run on Saturday 21 October. This course has been specially designed to induct new members and bring you up to speed on a range of skills.

Hope to see you there!

A $2.6 million investment, the facility in Poletti Street, Cockburn Central will house both Cockburn SES and the South Coogee Bush Fire Brigade.

Members of both units had a walkthrough of the building in July and were very impressed with the layout, fittings and sheer size. An exciting new era looms!
