NSW Minister for Emergency Services, David Elliott, visited Kiama to officially open a new $200,000 storage facility for the local SES, jointly funded by the Government and Kiama Council.

The new facility will provide secure housing for some of the Unit’s four rescue vehicles, two flood rescue boats and trailers.

In opening the storage facility, the Minister took the opportunity to officially present eleven awards to Kiama volunteers.

“These awards are a credit to the outstanding efforts shown by these members who have dedicated many years to volunteering for the NSW SES and helping the people of NSW in their time of need,” he said.
