The management of Swan SES would like to pass on its sincere thanks to Immersive Technologies for their generous donation of building products. Hundreds of dollars worth of silicon glue (Silastic etc) will ensure volunteers are able to carry out temporary window, roof and gutter repairs during the 2013 Winter Storm Season. Immersive Technologies promotes safety in the mining sector, which compliments the Swan SES promotion of safety awareness to the community. Tim Vause is shown receiving a Certificate of Appreciation from Swan SES Deputy Manager Ralf Schneider.
Ralf works fulltime as a Hardware Support Engineer at Immersive Technologies. He would like to thank his managers and workmates for the support they have shown him during the last storm (winter) and fire (summer) seasons.
Swan SES is extensively supported/funded by Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) and the City of Swan local government through the Emergency Services Levy (ESL) and other budgetary mechanisms. But you will also find SES Units running sausage sizzles or participating in charity events to raise awareness and funds. Donations of materials, services, equipment, and financial donations from the private sector allows Swan SES government funding to go much further.
Businesses can help another other way too
Emergency incidents are unpredictable by nature, taking place both inside and outside working hours. Businesses can help the community, by allowing SES and Bush Fire Brigade volunteer employees to be available for emergencies. Incidents like the Avon Valley Fires, Sawyers Valley Search and Goldfields Search ran through nights and over multiple days. Allowing time off for volunteers to recover after attending incidents which occurred out of work hours, is equally valuable.
