MANDURAH SES can now complete the car park and hard stand area at its new Education Drive headquarters following the presentation of a cheque for $50,000 from Mandurah MLA David Templeman.
Mr Templeman was delivering on an election promise he made to the group in the lead-up to the March state election.
“During the 30 years I have lived in Mandurah, I have noticed the growth of the Mandurah SES unit and the high standard of professionalism and service volunteers have given to the community,’’ he said.
After the unit moved into its new facility on Education Drive, Greenfields last year, it was clear more funding was needed to complete works at the new premises.
“I was delighted to confirm and present a cheque for $50,000 to the unit that will allow them to complete the car park and hard stand area,’’ he said.
Mr Templeman said the unit was one of the highly acknowledged and decorated SES units in WA and one of the biggest, with more than 80 volunteers.
The unit will be converted to a major Incident Control Centre during emergencies and is equipped with the latest technology and equipment associated with emergency management.
