Cadets’ pride in presentation
THE PCYC emergency service cadets from Childers received new uniforms.
The uniforms are professional looking and give the cadets immense pride in wearing them.
Local co-ordinator Rhy Baker said the cadets looked professional and she was proud of her team.
Imogen Baker was recognised for her voluntary work in the community as a PCYC emergency service cadet.
She was one of the top 15 cadets across the state.
The reward and recognition program included a week in Brisbane, training at the state’s leading emergency services training facilities.
She was the only cadet from Childers to receive this award in the two years of the program.
Imogen got to experience the following training programs:
Surf life saving, volunteer marine rescue;
Qld Fire and Rescue academy – Whyte Island;
Cedar Creek Wolffdene rural fire brigade;
Qld Police academy;
a guest at the presentation at Parliament House.
Imogen was awarded with a medal at Parliament House in recognition of her outstanding volunteering in her community.
The Queensland Fire and Emergency Service (QFES) Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) K9s Ingrid and Ernie visited the cadets on Wednesday, October 7.
The cadets learned about how invaluable and important this division is in time of disaster or emergency.
To display Ernie’s search skills, several cadets were hidden around the Childers SES shed and Ernie found every one. Ingrid and Ernie make a great team and have inspired some to look into USAR K9 as a career.
