From Greg Cook President 

Hello to you!

I am saying this with thanks that our temperatures in most of the state are cooling as we move into March. While we have often experienced hot temperatures in March in years gone by, let’s hope the hottest days are behind us all.

With the climate in mind, the SES has continued its community service operationally with examples such as its response to Ex-Tropical Cyclone Lincoln moving its way down the WA coast and moving inland, working in partnership with WA Police in searching for missing people, and assisting DFES workers and Bush Fire Brigades at fires throughout the state.

Thank you again to each SES member, their families, and employers for your ongoing support.  The message for March is a simple one and is based on the leadership role the SES plays in communities.

They don’t shout out loud about it, but demonstrate this through their actions.

  • Good leaders build products
  • Great leaders build cultures
  • Good leaders deliver results
  • Great leaders develop people
  • Good leaders have a vision
  • Great leaders have values
  • Good leaders are role models at work
  • Great leaders are role models in life
