SES now supported
NORTH Burnett Regional Council aims to reduce the impact of future natural disasters by expanding the Local Disaster Management levy.
The levy will now assist not only the local Rural Fire Units, but also other emergency management areas like the SES.
Monto SES group leader Roslyn Griffiths said the extra funding was much-needed.
“We want to extend our shed, we haven’t got much room to move at the moment,” she said. She said it would also make their boat rescue work, food drops, temporary house repairs, searches and traffic management work during a disaster more effective.
