Wednesday 3 February 2010 – 8:55 AM

Stirling SES is looking for people who want to develop a range of skills, form new friendships and be part of a team.

 

If you are over 18 and have a desire to help your help your community then Stirling SES would like to hear from you.

 

Stirling SES Unit Manager Chris Brondsema said there were many benefits to becoming a volunteer.

 

“Volunteering is a really worthwhile cause, aside from knowing you are protecting your community, it’s a great way to meet new people,” Mr Brondsema said.

 

Mr Brondsema said volunteers were trained in a wide range of areas such as first aid, radio communication, map reading and land search.

 

“SES volunteers help protect their community during times of need, and can assist in everything from storm, flood and cyclone call outs search and rescue incidents.

 

“Wherever your skills lie or what background you may have, there are many different ways that you can help.

 

“Stirling SES will provide you with great training and personal development opportunities.

 

“You can expect excitement, challenges and the reward of knowing that you are really making a huge difference in your community.”
