It’s National Red Balloon Day, thankyou to our courageous and dedicated volunteer firies!
On the 20th January, Cockburn SES and the Jandakot Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade went to Bunnings Cockburn Central for the annual Emergency Services Fundraiser.
The day is always a great one with Bunnings firing up the barbie for a big sausage sizzle!
Lots of City of Cockburn locals popped down for lunch, and talked emergency preparedness while the kids practiced what phone numbers to call in an emergency, visited the bouncy castle, and took some SES colouring in! Cockburn SES Volunteer Elesha also met a new friend ‘Stan’ from the SES WA Search Dog Unit who came to visit and support the cause.
Many thanks to Bunnings Cockburn Central for helping to fundraise for the volunteer emergency services!

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!
This week we teamed up with our neighbours from the Melville State Emergency Service, for an Urban Search and Rescue exercise.
Navigating rubble piles and rescuing ‘casualties’ kept us busy! Thanks Melville for a great night of training!
