Wanneroo Times - - NEWS -

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.
