Pilbara News - - Front Page -

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.
