Members of the Sutton State Emergency Service (SES) unit are helping the community in more ways than one.

On Sunday, March 4, one of the unit’s members travelled to Sydney to participate in the 40th  annual Mardi Gras festival.

There, they managed to catch up with 60 other SES members from around the state in celebrating equality.

As well as equality, members also helped the environment.

A good portion of the unit also participated in the annual Clean Up Australia Day operations in Sutton and Gundaroo on March 4.

Meanwhile, other members represented NSW SES at the opening of the new Tuggeranong SES facility in Canberra on Saturday, March 3.

During the week beginning March 6, another Sutton member was in Wagga Wagga learning the ins and outs of emergency management.

There was also work with other agencies to provide efficient and rapid support to communities in time of emergency and disaster.

It’s not just in storms and floods where they made a difference, they said, and urged residents to consider volunteering at the SES.
