Awards to recognise courageous acts
NOMINATIONS are open for the St John Ambulance Community Hero Awards.
St John chief executive Michelle Fyfe said the awards acknowledged individuals who had shown selflessness and courage to save the life of another.
Craig Lawrence, of Churchlands, one of last year’s winners, pulled a young woman out of a burning vehicle that had crashed along the Forrest Highway.
“I feel humbled and honoured; I’m just glad I could help,” Mr Lawrence said.
There are two awards categories: Meritorious Service Award for St John staff and volunteers. and Community (adults and youth) for members of the public.
