Power companies back SES
SES groups will receive a boost from partners Energy Queensland and Powerlink, with donations of new equipment as part of the Energising Queensland SES Equipment Program.
The new equipment includes stretchers, power tools, CPR kits, lighting and chainsaws.
Energy Queensland CEO Rod Duke said both Ergon and Energex have been long-time supporters of the SES and looked forward to another year assisting their ‘invaluable’ volunteers.
“There’s always the unfortunate damage to property and disruption to lives but, on the positive side, there’s a sea of invaluable volunteers in orange overalls working hard helping the community back on its feet,” Mr Duke said.
“These members of the SES not only help make lives in the community better during and after emergencies, they also provide significant support to Energex and Ergon crews out there getting power back on.
“And for their tireless assistance for our crews and the wider community we are proud to continue our decade-long support of the amazing work they do.”
