On Sunday the 29th of November 2015 Rockingham Kwinana SES were conducting a training exercise. As the team moved from one training area to another they noticed that the Unit bus had two of its windows smashed and personal items stolen. As a result of this senseless act the Unit has been deprived of this very valuable resource. The main purpose of the bus is to transport SES members for Unit activities and support firefighting operations by transferring Fire Fighters from FRS and BFS to from fire grounds. The bus has been taken off line until repaired due to safety concerns.
If anyone knows the person or persons that did this low act please contact WA Police on 131444.
