Vol­un­teer’s ef­forts awarded

Central and North Burnett Times - - SES WEEK 2012 -

GAYN­DAH State Emer­gency Ser­vice (SES) vol­un­teer John Lamb will be awarded for his in­valu­able con­tri­bu­tion to the ser­vice.

Mr Lamb will re­ceive the award in Gympie on Satur­day, as part of SESWeek ac­tiv­i­ties.

His ded­i­ca­tion was on dis­play re­cently af­ter a freak storm tore through Gayn­dah, as he as­sisted in putting tar­pau­lins over houses and clean­ing up the sub­stan­tial dam­age.

Serv­ing for eight years in the lo­cal SES, Mr Lamb has pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence in the Eidsvold SES and marine res­cue.

Gayn­dah SES Cap­tain David Wil­son said Mr Lamb was “re­ally de­serv­ing” of the award.

“He is in­volved with pretty much ev­ery­thing we do,” Mr Wil­son said yes­ter­day.
