20/2/2012 – New members & new gear
Last night saw an information session held at the unit for perspective members. Since before christmas we have had over 20 people register interest in becoming a member of the Belmont SES.
Everyone joins the SES for their own reasons, so last night we got together and discussed what we provide, expectations and processes to give the perspective members an overview of what we are all about.
With the night drawing to an end a total of 11 people signed documentation and took the first major step in joining the ranks of the Belmont/Victoria Park State Emergency Service.
The last induction was a huge success with 85% retention.
In addition to that over the next 6 weeks we should be given 3 new sets of keys – 2 trucks are due to be delivered and our new premises is nearing completion. Something all members have been looking forward to.
