LIVERPOOL Plains Shire Council (LPSC) is set to open its new emergency services precinct in Quirindi to the community on June 1.
Locals will have an opportunity to inspect the new Pryor Street facility when council officially opens the site with a barbecue lunch.
The event will also form part of council’s National Volunteers Week celebrations and act as a showcase for the region’s many volunteers.
LPSC mayor Andrew Hope said he is hopeful of a large turnout for the event.
“The new emergency services precinct is a valuable community owned asset and this event will enable the public to inspect the facilities,” Cr Hope said.
“As part of National Volunteers Week, it will allow us to showcase local volunteer organisations and their volunteers.
“There will be a free BBQ courtesy of LPSC.
“Amongst the organisations that will be in attendance are the RFS, State Emergency Service (SES), NSW Volunteer Rescue Association (VRA), and Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.”
Cr Hope also extended an invitation to all of the community’s volunteer groups.
“We are also extending an invitation for any of the shire’s other volunteer organisations to join our event, set up a display and network with the community,” he said.
“If your group would like to be part of it please contact LPSC’s acting community events co-ordinator, Andrew Ballard via email email@example.com or phone 6746 1755.”
