Kalbarri SES News for July 2015
Mac Holt from Kalbarri SES reports a water spout appeared just off the coast and caused damage to a property when it crossed land, resulting in a call-out to provide temporary repairs. Regular evening training was added to with a 3 day Regional Single Rope Rescue course. Community activities were abundant this month with weekly fundraising, a visit by 'Shine' girls to promote confidence and trust as they had thrills and fun abseiling from our tower, and a riverside cleanup with the community. We also acquired for free a 5 seater ATV from a Pilbara mining company and after years of lobbying state and federal government have funded mobile coverage in Kalbarri National Park. This will result in reduced emergency notification times.
