Completion of New Shed for Merredin State Emergency Service (SES) Unit 

The Merredin State Emergency Service (SES) Unit has just received a major boost to their operating facilities with the completion of a new 3-bay shed.  

Funding was provided by DFES and construction began in March. Up until now the Unit has not had a shed to house vehicles, trailers and equipment which have been stored outside, exposed to the elements. The shed will house the Unit’s 2 vehicles, incident trailers and other equipment that has been stored within the Unit’s main building. This additional secure storage space will allow  better use of their main building for activities like meetings, training courses and exercises.

The Unit currently has 12 members and Local Manager Mark Briggs is hopeful that the new shed may help to attract some new volunteers to join the Unit.
