New furniture helps out local state emergency services

Posted on Friday, 24 February 2017



A $7,498 donation from Canterbury has helped kit out NSW SES Canterbury Unit’s training room with tables and chairs to meet the influx of its growing members.

“A surge in our volunteer intake has seen our small unit grow from 43 to 65+ members. Our previous training room can hold around 40 people with the former resources, so this extra equipment has allowed us to extend our resources to fit our new members in,” said Brad Collins, Flood Rescue Officer of Canterbury Unit.

“Before, we had volunteer members sitting on the floor or milk creates while they were being trained in various courses such as first aid, flood rescue awareness, general rescue and storm and water damage operations.”

The local unit, which operates from Beverly Hills, can now accommodate larger scale training events with its new furniture.

“Feedback from volunteers has been overwhelming; they are loving the new training furniture and are happy that they now have a table to sit at during training events and operational work.

“The grant has made a significant contribution to enhance Canterbury Unit’s functionality, efficiency, and training capabilities; thereby directly and indirectly benefiting the community in the long run,” said Brad.

“SES does wonderful work for the community, as seen in their quick response to the calls that they have received during the wild weather we’ve been having recently.
