Backing Our SES Volunteers in Kororoit
State Emergency Service volunteers in Kororoit will benefit from a new station in Caroline Springs, thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.
The state’s SES will receive $34.3 million to modernise their buildings and establish brand new units.
The funds will also go towards purchasing new equipment, including trucks, boats and trailers, to make sure our dedicated volunteers have everything they need to keep our suburbs safe.
In a significant reform, $14.9 million will cover the operational costs of SES units and also assist with long term leases for those located on council land, giving volunteers more certainty about their future.
It will mean local volunteers can spend less time tin-rattling, and more time out in the community.
