GOVERNMENT PROVIDES ASSISTANCE FOR SES VOLUNTEER UNIT

Minister for Police and Emergency Services Michael Gallacher has announced funding to support a range of projects in New South Wales State Emergency Service (SES) Units across the State.

The funding ranges from $1,200 to $10,000 and will permit essential maintenance and community engagement activities.

Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George is pleased that Murwillumbah SES has received $2,000 towards community engagement materials.

Mr George said that after a busy start to the year, the attention of the SES volunteers had turned to readying for future natural disasters.

“This year has been a challenging time for NSW SES volunteers who have assisted so many people affected by storms and floods.

“Now the bad weather has passed, this funding will enable units to undertake several community engagement initiatives and ready the community for when floods and severe weather again affect the State.

“I have the strongest admiration and appreciation of our NSW SES volunteers and it gives the Government great pleasure to be able to provide support for the work that they undertake in this way,” Mr George concluded.
