12/12/2014 - Armadale SES receives their Bus

On Wednesday night Santa came early to the Armadale SES Unit.  Following the unit’s end of year presentation of training certificates and various awards SESVA President Gordon Hall announced the arrival of the third SESVA-BHP Billiton Bus.  Present at the occasion were a number of invited guest including:

  • Mr Nathan Hall Community Emergency Services Coordinator
  • Mr Don Randall Federal Member for Parliament
  • Mr Glenn Luton and wife Maureen City of Armadale Depot supervisor
  • Mr Mark Geary acting on behalf of the Mayor
  • Mr Chris Kin Maung DFES -  District Officer

SESVA Representatives

  • Gordon Hall President
  • Phillip Petersen ESM
  • John Capes OAM

After Gordon announced the arrival of the bus unit members spend time inspecting and testing the features of the bus and posing for group pictures. To say the unit members were delighted with their latest vehicle would be the understatement of the year.  This is the third of the buses to be presented to SES Units. Rockingham/Kwinana were presented with their bus on Tuesday at a low key event which I am sure will be followed with an official occasion in the future.
