Isis Town and Country - - News | Kolan -

THE Bund­aberg State Emer­gency Service unit is the pride of the State after be­ing named SES Unit of the Year at an awards cer­e­mony in Bris­bane at the week­end.

The group is now the proud hold­ers of the Com­mis­sioner’s Cup which sig­ni­fies the lead­ing SES unit across the state.

Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil Mayor Jack Dempsey who at­tended the pre­sen­ta­tion said the tro­phy was just re­ward for the high stan­dards the Bund­aberg SES unit had con­sis­tently achieved in re­cent times.

“Th­ese peo­ple are real he­roes, orange he­roes – in our com­mu­nity. We thank them, we thank their fam­i­lies and we thank their em­ploy­ers who pro­vide them with time off to at­tend their SES com­mit­ments.

Lo­cal Con­troller of the Bund­aberg Unit, Jeff Green said the out­stand­ing sup­port the unit re­ceived from the coun­cil went a long way to en­sur­ing the group was able to op­er­ate at peak ef­fec­tive­ness.

“We have a unit that is high on morale, well-equipped and en­joy­ing the role we play within the com­mu­nity.

“Our group has in­cred­i­ble com­mu­ni­ca­tion with coun­cil, in­ter­nal prac­tices are good, mem­ber­ship is strong and group dy­nam­ics are very pos­i­tive.”
