Emergency services get back to normal
FOR two weeks a group of emergency personnel have worked around the clock to bring the Whitsundays back to normal.
And now the time has come for normality to return to their own lives.
State Emergency Service workers were officially stood down with normal operations since Tuesday.
As the announcement hit social media, the community responded with gratitude.
Vicki May was one of many Whitsunday residents to express her sentiments
“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You all represent the epitome of the Aussie spirit of mateship. You have made many friends in Collinsville,” she posted.
Whitsunday Mayor Andrew Willcox acknowledged the hard work by emergency workers across the region.
“On behalf of council, I would like to thank the hard-working and dedicated members of the SES and Rural Fire Brigade,” he said.
