This week VICSES units across the south-west have received critical funds to purchase essential lifesaving equipment, as part of the AAMI Equipment Handover program.

This year’s funds have been used to purchase 550 pieces of rescue equipment, worth more than $80,000, across the south-west.

Among the purchases, include 15 work-light kits for our units including Camperdown, Cobden and Port Fairy, while a new marquee is headed the way of the Warrnambool Unit.

In the last 12 months alone, VICSES volunteers in the south-west have responded to over 2,800 emergency calls for assistance.

South-West Regional Manager Nicholas Cowham, says the funding from AAMI will help ensure that volunteers can continue such responses.

“VICSES volunteers are trusted by their communities to help in times of need"

"Thanks to this funding, our volunteers are provided with the best equipment to support the community and save lives”.
