Dedicated officer calls time on career
Department of Fire and Emergency Services district officer John Winton has retired after more than 16 years of service.
Mr Winton has served as a district officer for the DFES in Esperance, Kununurra, and Karratha since 1999.
At a send-off last Saturday, Mr Winton received messages of good wishes and thanks from the public, family and friends.
DFES Pilbara Superintendent John Newman said Mr Winton would be remembered fondly.
“John will be remembered by staff and volunteers alike as a dedicated and knowledgeable off- icer whose passion for the profession and skills as a trainer have enthused those around him to perform at their best. I thank John for his contribution over many years, and on behalf of everyone at DFES wish him, his wife Sally and his family all the best for the future,” he said.
