Do­na­tion to rev up res­cues

Pilbara News - - News -

Kar­ratha State Emer­gency Ser­vice now has more teeth at its dis­posal, cour­tesy of a chain­saw do­na­tion from one of its mem­bers.

Vicki Con­nolly bought a ticket at the Kar­ratha City Shop­ping Cen­tre’s McHappy Day fundraiser while man­ning the SES cy­clone prepa­ra­tion stand along­side the fundraiser.

Ms Con­nolly won the Stihl chain­saw, do­nated by Home Hard­ware, and did not give a sec­ond thought as to where it would be put to best use.

SES lo­cal man­ager Trevor Pat­ton said the unit was thank­ful for Ms Con­nolly’s self­less­ness.

“With cy­clone sea­son upon us the chain­saw will be an im­por­tant piece of equip­ment for our unit,” he said.

Home Hard­ware man­ager Mick McAllen said he was pleased to see the prize go to a wor­thy cause.
