Cheers to region’s SES volunteers
THIS week is SES Week; an opportunity to thank the thousands of Queenslanders who volunteer their time with the SES to help out their community.
As Member for Burnett, I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of the Queensland SES members for their dedication and commitment to helping out fellow Queenslanders in times of need.
Childers SES is the perfect example of how invaluable the service is.
Earlier this year we saw the Childers SES group pull together for 72 hours to assist police to find a missing three-year-old girl.
Members of this remarkable team, with the help of other groups, searched from dusk until dawn for the little girl, and thankfully the outcome was a positive one.
Their commitment to the role in the search was truly commendable and earned the team the well-deserved title of Regional Operational Response of the Year.
It’s clear to see that this team of volunteers care for their community and I’d encourage you to take the time to thank any of these fine volunteers.
