Stratford’s SES shed opened

STRATFORD’S community received a significant boost to community safety with the official opening of its SES unit’s new $280,000 facility.

Gippsland East MLA Tim Bull, representing Deputy Premier and Minister for Police and Emergency Services Peter Ryan, said the new building offered stability and vastly improved conditions for emergency services volunteers.

“This new facility at McFarlane Street has been built through the financial support of the State Government, the Stratford unit, Wellington Shire Council and the community,” Mr Bull said.

“The unit lost its previous facility in a devastating arson attack 10 years ago and has since continued its dedicated emergency response with no official meeting rooms or training spaces.
