Narembeen Volunteer Emergency Service to officially open

The Narembeen Recreation Centre will be officially opened by Shire of Narembeen Freeman, Mr Melvin Bristow, Mr Halley Cowan and Mr Stephen Padfield JP at a ceremony on Friday 14th September 2018.

The Narembeen Volunteer Emergency Service development began in March 2017 with the facility costing $717,000 to build.  The building collocates the Narembeen Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade and the Narembeen St John Sub-Centre and replaces two outdated and inadequate buildings no longer meeting the needs of each of these emergency service organisations.

Shire President, Cr Rhonda Cole said “this is magnificent facility provides the community with a structured approach to emergency situations, it will play a critical role in the overall management of disasters”.

The facility signifies the growth and success of Narembeen and is about providing a shared base for the operations of these groups who can work side by side to share their expertise and experience.

The Shire of Narembeen recognises the valuable contribution made to the Narembeen community by emergency service personnel and the need to provide ongoing support to ensure these groups to have the training and resources required.

Narembeen volunteers are a vital part of the fabric of our vibrant community, it is important to acknowledge and support them through dedicated infrastructure such as this wonderful facility, said Cr Cole.
