Appeal for SES Cadets for newly-formed Lowood unit
THE newly formed Emergency Services Cadets (ESC) Somerset Unit is meeting each Thursday from 6pm to 8pm at the Lowood State Emergency Services (SES) headquarters, having held its sign-on night on May 27.
The signs were encouraging as a number of local school-aged children registered, while some of the attendees also enjoyed food from a barbecue.
The ESC program is offered to people aged 12 to 17 years, and operates out of an Emergency Services facility such as a local SES headquarters or a Rural Fire Service (RFS) station.
The aim of the program is to provide young people with a safe, fun and inclusive environment that offers practical life skills and leadership opportunities.
