A total of 115 years of community service was recognised by members of the local Port Macquarie SES unit on December 1.
At the end of year celebrations eight members were recognised for their long service including four members who have been volunteering for 10 years, three members for 15 years service and one member for 30 years of dedicated service.
Deputy zone commander for the Mid Coast, Anthony Day, said it was a wonderful afternoon of celebrating some great achievements.
“The NSW SES recognises the diligent and long service of its members and we celebrated the achievements of a number of the members from the Port Macquarie unit on Saturday night,” Mr Day said.
“The number of long service awards is an outstanding reflection of depth of the unit and its leadership under the past and current unit commanders.
“The Port Macquarie unit is very well trained and is one of the premier units across all of NSW.”
Mr Day said the long service achievements should make the local community very proud of its dedicated volunteers.
“What the Port Macquarie unit also has is a special rescue unit and to be able to maintain that extra skills and qualifications is a testament to the work and close nature of the unit and its members,” he said.
“The whole unit is incredibly professional and the community should be very proud of them all.”
