Mr Pri­day has been with VMR Whit­sun­days for more than 15 years and said when he first re­ceived the email, he thought it was spam.

"It was en­tirely un­ex­pected. It's just do­ing some­thing for the com­mu­nity and us­ing the train­ing and ex­pe­ri­ence that I've got,” Mr Pri­day said.

"I'm quite hum­bled by the recog­ni­tion.”

The 2018 QBANK Ever­day He­roes award winners will be an­nounced on Septem­ber 21.
