Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC QC is the patron for the Rotary NSW Emergency Services Awards. This year, the awards received a record number of nominations. From the Cities to the Bush, and from veterans with decades of service to shining lights at the beginning of their service journeys, each one epitomises the Rotary motto: Service above self.
The Rotary Emergency Services awards are in their 7th year and recognise the outstanding work of volunteer and paid service personnel across New South Wales.
Four finalists from Fire Rescue NSW, Marine Rescue, Surf Lifesaving NSW, VRA Rescue NSW, NSW Ambulance, NSW Rural Fire Service and NSW State Emergency Service.
Calrossy was very proud to learn the our Part Time Operations Team Member Wayne Keel was announced for the winner of the NSW Rural Fire Service category. Wayne has been an active member for 20 years and is very passionate about implementing the RFS Cadet program within local schools. In 2020 Calrossy held the first Cadet Program and we are committed to continuing this and providing opportunities for our students to participate. With many students off the land bush fires are a real issue and by undertaking the Cadet program it puts students on a pathway to becoming a member of their local Brigade.
