SES opens new HQ
MULLUMBIMBY State Emergency Service (SES) has a new headquarters.
The $235,000 building was officially opened yesterday by Emergency Services Minister Steve Whan, along with SES Commissioner Murray Kear, other dignitaries and SES volunteers.
“This new headquarters building, with its improved facilities, will help the volunteers provide an even greater level of protection to the people of Mullumbimby and the surrounding areas,” Mr Whan said.
Mr Whan also gave the SES an extra $5000 for air-conditioning.
“This new base includes a specially equipped operations and communications room, ample storage and upgraded facilities for volunteers, as well as garaging for the unit's vehicles and two flood boats,” he said.
Mr Kear said the SES should be recognised for its commitment.
