Merriwa Rescue Squad

Each year, squad members provide
traffic control for ANZAC Day

Redirecting and monitoring traffic is a necessary
task, to ensure the safety of the public. The
cooperation of pedestrians and motorists is very
much appreciated.

This year, the Merriwa and District Rescue Squad
will celebrate 40 years of voluntary service to the
community. Over the decades members have
provided the community with a vital service – as
our motto states: Acquiro et Succuro, ‘a helping
hand, anytime, anywhere.’ We would also like
to acknowledge the ongoing generous support
of the Merriwa and Cassilis community. We will
keep you posted about a celebratory event
occurring around October.

If you are interested in joining our group, please
come along to a training night at the LEOC
Centre (corner of Bettington and Marquet
Streets). Training nights are the second and third
Wednesdays of each month.
