Emergency Services Expo is on again at Townhead Park

Singleton SES Community Engagement Officer, Simone Burrows, says they had a fantastic turn out at the inaugural Emergency Services Expo. “So this year we have endeavoured to make it bigger and better to draw in a larger crowd,” she says.

“All the emergency services have come together and put in a lot work to make the event possible. So come along and support the services that continuously support our community.”
