From the President
Welcome to 2021 and we are told it’s now a High Threat Season in the West. From the Association, all of us extend a “Hi to you” and welcome back. For our newer unit members, welcome to the orange army and family.
Again, I am proud of the extraordinary response from SES members to support our respective and neighbouring communities in times of emergency. There are so many people who have trust in our willingness and capability to pitch in and help.
Respecting those who are now in active service with the elite Orange Angels RIP
