Heathcote SES will have an open house at its new premises on the corner of Herriot and Wright streets, behind Heathcote police station, on Saturday from 10am until 1pm.
Heathcote SES spokesperson James Duncan said the new building and the SES’ equipment would be on display.
‘‘Come over after you have been to the market and look over the equipment used to keep you safe during storms and accidents,’’ Mr Duncan said.
‘‘Come and see the unit’s new extension which has increased the indoor training area threefold.
‘‘There will be a free sausage sizzle.’’
Mr Duncan said the SES was looking for new members.
‘‘There are vacancies not only in the operations side where new skills will be taught, but also as active support staff for admin computer work and we would like to attract someone to look after our books and finances
They are targeting retirees and younger community members and Mr Duncan particularly encouraged women to consider joining.
‘‘We do have two very active female members who are highly qualified in most of our skill requirements, including road crash rescue.
‘‘People who are interested but baulk at doing road crash work need not fear this as there are many other skills needed.
‘‘We do sand bagging and build levees and go outside the Heathcote area to assist in flood work anywhere in the state
