The announcement came following a busy day for the SES responding to Tuesday afternoon’s damaging storms. 

“The SES here in Young, under the great leadership of Chris Duffy requested a flagpole for their station when I visited them last year,” Ms Cooke said.

“The members of this Unit are very proud of their station and the work they do in the community and wanted to express this further by flying the Australian flag.

“There’s no better day than today, after our SES have been responding to yesterday’s storm, to extend both my and the community’s thanks for their continued and most valued service.”

Ms Cooke was successful in securing $3,934 in discretionary funds through the Minister for Emergency Services, Troy Grant for two flagpoles.
