10/11/2014 - Minister meets Rockingham SES Volunteers

The Minister Visits Rockingham
On Wednesday night, 5 November, the Honourable Joe Francis MLA, Minister for Emergency Services, visited the Rockingham-Kwinana SES Unit. Along with the Minister was his Principal Policy Adviser, Jarad Finneran.  The Minister was met by local Manager Dave Beard, and deputy Managers Gordon Hall, David Price and Mark Booth.  The Group then had discussions with the Minister on a number of general matters and a number of stories were swapped.

Local Manager Dave Beard then took the Minister on a tour of the Unit where he was able to observe all sections, including SES Volunteers practicing their radio techniques and the construction of wooden frameworks for securing buildings after car versus house or other types of events.  At the end of the night the Minister presented a number of certificates for training completed and appointment indicators for Volunteers who were taking on leadership roles.

The SES Volunteers were pleased with the Minister’s visit and the interest he showed in what they were doing and how they did their role.
