DFES EDUCATION AND HERITAGE CENTRE
The DFES Education and Heritage Centre is re-opening next week after being closed for the holidays. The centre is urgently seeking volunteers to help with the influx of visitors that it gets on a regular basis. The centre is located at the 100 year old original Perth Fire station on Murray Street. It would appear that very few SES Volunteers are aware of its existence and if they are think it is all about Fire. However it is well worth a visit as it contains very good displays of SES lead and combat roles such as storm, cyclone, flood, tsunami, land search, earthquake and cliff rescue.
The centre already have a couple of SES Volunteers to assist the other vollies who are largely from a fire backgrounds and have limited knowledge of the SES roles.
The centre is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 am to 4 pm. SES Volunteers who could give a few hours of their time on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis would be greatly appreciated. It would be ideal for a retired or semi-retired members.
Take the time to have a look around and if interested in volunteering contact Heather McNamara at DFES on 9395 9300 for further information.
