Emergency Services Open Day a Success

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke has praised the work of first responders in the local community, during a visit to the Narrandera Combined Emergency Services Open Day.

The Open Day was one of similar events held across the state over the weekend, giving locals the chance to meet and talk with emergency service personnel about the work they do to keep the community safe.

“We are incredibly fortunate to have such dedicated emergency service professionals working tirelessly for our communities,” Ms Cooke said.

“Open Days like this are a fantastic opportunity for the community to come together, show our appreciation, and learn more about the important work these heroes do.

“From firefighters to paramedics, police officers to VRA Rescue members, and SES volunteers, the day was a chance to learn about the vital roles these individuals play in our towns and villages.

“The rainy weather certainly didn’t dampen the high spirits of our emergency services in Narrandera, and I had a truly wonderful time,” she said.

The event featured live demonstrations, displays of vehicles and equipment, and informative presentations designed to educate attendees on various aspects of emergency response and preparedness.

“The little ones especially absolutely loved the chance to sit up in the fire engines and on board the rescue equipment, while I was excited to meet the NSW Ambulance puppy mascots who proved to be very popular members of the team,” Ms Cooke said.

“These kinds of events are not only informative and a great way for families to learn about the crucial role of our emergency services, but they’re also a great opportunity for us to say ‘thank you’ for the work these teams of people do each and every day, to help us in times of trouble, and to keep our communities safe places to live,” she said.
