It is not often people are allowed to write on vehicles, but this was what Echuca residents were encouraged to do yesterday as a way of saying thanks to the SES.
Echuca and district residents were invited to write messages of thanks on an SES forward command vehicle which was visiting Echuca as part of a trip throughout Victoria to celebrate SES Week this week.
‘‘It’s for the people of Echuca to say thanks for the work they (the SES) do,’’ said SES mid west regional support unit officer Rod Shirley, who is travelling with the convoy.
Echuca SES member John Thompson said the convoy also raised awareness of what the SES does.
‘‘It’s good to see the support,’’ he said.
‘‘A lot of people have been stopping and having a chat.
‘‘It does put it in their mind if anything unfortunate happens, they can contact us.’’
