SES heroes thanked
STATE Emergency Service volunteers from Stanthorpe to Cunnamulla were awarded for their service at a small ceremony in Wallumbilla on Saturday.
The event marked the start of Queensland’s SES Week, which acknowledges the work of SES volunteers from around the state.
Southwest SES regional manager Rob Bundy said SES Week was about acknowledging the huge commitment made by each member.
“SES Week is an important date in our calendar, it gives us the opportunity to pause and reflect on the efforts and contributions of our volunteers,” he said.
“This week is a time to say thank you to the volunteers, not only for the time they put in when events occur but also the time they so generously give to ensure they are a skilled and professional rescue organisation.”
At the Wallumbilla combined emergency services base, troops from across southwest Queensland received awards for long service, meritorious service and providing assistance in emergencies.
WELL DONE: Tyson Golder, Wallumbilla SES’s Fergus Seawright and regional manager Rob Bundy.
