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”.
