‘‘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.

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.
