That’s a wrap for training this year!

That’s a wrap for our weekly training for the year! Last night we completed all the team building challenges and had some amazing food to finish it off. We also caught the Training Team whispering about the 2018 Training schedule, we wonder what they have in store for us next year!
We’ll be on call throughout the holidays if you need the SES, just phone 132 500.

Breakfast with the firies

Today we went to the Firies Breakfast to talk emergency preparedness along with our neighbours the South Coogee Bush Fire Brigade and the Jandakot Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade!!
Thanks to everyone for coming, it’s great see people get a head start on planning and preparedness not just bushfire season but for any Emergency!

GPS Training

This week’s training was GPS. Though we still use and rely on compasses and maps, GPS can be really helpful in searches and rescue, especially for tracking a team’s path. Thanks to Steve for the training!
