Gunnedah Workshop Enterprises (GWE) participants recently enjoyed  a tour of the Gunnedah SES facility, where they were shown the work undertaken by the SES behind the scenes, before and after major events. 

They also had the chance to inspect the SES rescue truck, operate the ‘jaws of life’ which are used during road crash rescues, as well as other tools and machinery.

The visit was a good opportunity for GWE participants to meet with their   local SES volunteers in an informal setting and to instil confidence in the event of an emergency. 

It also helped to remind everyone about the important role the SES provides to the community during emergency events. 

GWE participants and staff thanked the SES volunteers for the opportunity to learn more about their operations. 

The State Emergency Service provides emergency assistance to the people of NSW 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year; and is made up of about 9000 volunteers across the state.
