Thermofilm Australia expressed their appreciation for the efforts of all dedicated SES volunteers by donating Heatstrip Max heaters to the Kilmore SES training facility. SES volunteers give up their time to assist and protect the community in times of emergency, in line with their core values of commitment, integrity and community focus.

Thermofilm’s Heatstrip Max heaters will assist the Kilmore SES operate the large training room facility by providing a more comfortable environment for their members. Unit Controller Frank Roberts explains that the heaters will allow their members to train out of the weather.

SES volunteer members place themselves in the elements every time they attend an incident, from road accidents, storm and flood to building damage and trees down on roads.

Scott Davis, Deputy Controller of Operations adds that the gesture has been greatly appreciated by volunteers of the Kilmore SES. The range appealed to the unit due to the resilience of the heating units and heating ability for large areas. The all metal construction of the heaters also eliminates any risk of breakage during impacts.
