HORSHAM’S State Emergency Service unit acknowledged its 20-year partnership with Horsham Auto Wreckers. 

Unit controller Jarrod McLean said members were grateful for Auto Wreckers’ owner Gilbert Membry’s generous assistance in ongoing donation of vehicles. 

He said the partnership provided the unit with vital resources for road crash rescue training.

“Without the vehicles donated by Gil, members would not be able to undertake regular training, using the specialised equipment and skills needed to perform rescues from vehicles,” he said. 

Mr McLean said the units were always look to maintain their skills and train new members in road crash rescue. 

New members recently had the chance to gain skills in vehicle stabilisation, glass management, cutting techniques and casualty handling. 

Mr McLean said new volunteers were always welcomed. He encouraged people to visit ses.vic.gov.au to submit their information.
