Warwick’s Roslyn Newley is among State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers across Queensland whose dedicated service has been formally recognised.
SES South West Region personnel attended an award ceremony in Toowoomba last Saturday with Queensland Fire and Emergency Services Commissioner Katarina Carroll.
She said SES Week – 7 to 15 October – provided an opportunity to recognise “the outstanding contribution of staff and volunteers”.
“In times of crisis, the state turns to its more than 6000 SES members,” Ms Carroll said.
“These volunteers selflessly donate their time and energy to assist their communities and SES Week is our chance to thank them for their wonderful service and dedication.”
The South West Region is supported by more than 700 active SES volunteers from 45 groups.
‘Regional Unit of the Year’ was awarded to the Warwick SES Unit for its co-ordination and execution of several search and rescue operations in conjunction with other emergency service agencies including the Queensland Police Service and Queensland Ambulance Service, resulting in the rescue of missing persons.
SES Regional Manager Bob Bundy said the Warwick SES Unit “is a well-managed and highly trained unit which actively engages all its valued members”.
“As a result, their members are always willing to put up their hands and provide a comprehensive service when their community needs them,” he said.
SES Week certificates were presented to Roslyn Newley and other regional volunteers for “displaying exceptional dedication to their SES Units or Groups and their community”.
A number of National Medals and clasps and SES Meritorious Medals and clasps were also presented to dedicated and deserving SES volunteers at the ceremony.
