Good­bye Gayn­dah

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

ADAM Gwin, the newly ap­pointed fire ser­vices Zone Com­man­der, is sad to be leav­ing Gayn­dah.

The Su­per­in­ten­dent, who will now over­see area com­man­ders in Gayn­dah, Mary­bor­ough, Kin­garoy and Bund­aberg, took up his new role when Phil Whit­taker re­tired.

“We love Gayn­dah – it’s sad to leave,” he said.

“The good part is be­ing Zone Com­man­der, I still pro­vide over­sight to Gayn­dah, but not day-to-day,” Spt Gwin said.

As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner John Bol­ger said Spt Gwin was a “pretty good person ad­juster”.

“I’d like to leave him here, be­cause he’s do­ing an ex­cel­lent job, but I’ve got other peo­ple that need to be ad­justed,” he said.

“So now he’s got to fo­cus on the en­tire zone and the onus is on me to find another In­spec­tor ca­pa­ble of com­ing in and fill­ing Adam’s role.”

The As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner an­nounced the pro­mo­tion as he handed Spt Gwin a com­men­da­tion for “ex­hibit­ing out­stand­ing op­er­a­tional abil­i­ties to sup­press and con­trol the (Mun­dub­bera) Pig­gery Far­row­ing shed fire”.
