Cadets’ pride in pre­sen­ta­tion

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News -

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;

and

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.
