Santa arrives at Bunnings Moorabbin

Just for tonight, the initials SES were changed and stood for Santa’s Emergency Sleigh as Chelsea Rescue 3 was transformed to take the big man in red to visit the Mums and Dads and kids at Bunnings Moorabbin store. “Anytime Santa calls for assistance, we do our very best to help him out” said unit Controller, Ron Fitch.

Santa has arrived safe and sound  thanks to Chelsea SES

Chelsea members, Steve and Ria, had to take the places of Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and of course, Rudolph for the trip from Santa's home at the North Pole to Moorabbin. "We understand that Santa lives slightly out of our operational area, but in this case we were happy to make an exception" said Ron Fitch.

It was another happy collaboration between Chelsea SES and Bunnings Moorabbin and in fact, Chelsea SES will be hosting the Australia Day Barbie at Bunnings Moorabbin in Warrigal Road, on Monday the 28th of January 2013, so put it into your diary for next year and come on down and say hi.

This young man was very keen to see the SES truck and then see Santa

It will be business as usual for the volunteer members of Chelsea SES and will be available to assist the community as always, right through the holiday period. Last year of course, the Chelsea team were very busy right through from Christmas day to New Years day assisting Brimbank following the major storms that went through the area on Christmas morning.

Yanni from MP News getting the shot for an upcoming story

Earlier in the day, members were involved in a photo shoot for the Chelsea Mordialloc news for a story about the things that you can do to make both you and your property as safe as possible over the Christmas break at a time when Melbourne seems to be affected more and more by severe weather events, so watch out for that story.

Merry Christmas everyone!

“I guess our wish for Christmas for everyone, including our members, is for a happy, safe and most importantly, uneventful time” said unit Police and Media Liaison Officer, Phil Wall.
