Play a vital lifesaving role
THE State Emergency Service's Coffs Harbour City unit plans to boost its ranks with new recruits.
An information evening will be held at the unit's headquarters tonight for people who may be interested in becoming an SES volunteer.
“The Coffs Harbour City Unit is looking forward to welcoming new volunteer members to its ranks,” SES unit controller Bill Roffey said.
The evening at the Park Avenue SES base will start at 7pm with a brief presentation on the history and responsibilities of the SES and its members.
Topics covered will also include the SES structure, core activities, support activities, volunteer pathways, rescue and operations training, the code of conduct and member responsibilities.
“At the end of the presentation, interview appointments will be arranged for those interested in becoming members of the State Emergency Service,” Mr Roffey said.
“To finish off, a sausage sizzle and the opportunity to meet and mingle with members of the unit plus inspections of rescue vehicles, boats and equipment will take place.”
Due to the building renovations taking place, access to the base is only available via Park Avenue Lane at the rear of the unit headquarters.
