The Parkes Unit of the NSW State Emergency Services would like to invite Parkes residents and the surrounding communities to their Open Day on 11 August, between 10am and 3pm.
It’s an opportunity to chat to the volunteers, see a wide range of skills in action, check out the demonstrations and displays – preparing your property for storm damage, flooding and general rescue techniques.
Have you thought about volunteering? The Parkes Unit is looking for keen, enthusiastic and dependable people. Whatever your fitness level, background, skills or training, you can always contribute in some way. What about operations management, communications, logistics, community education, catering, maintenance or planning? All valuable skills that support the more-visible field and response work.
For further information, call the Parkes Local Controller, Phil Snow, on 0427 626 630.
