Awards to honour CQ SES volunteers
Local State Emergency Service (SES) members are being recognised at an award ceremony this weekend.
The event coincides with SES Week 2020, which will run from Saturday 17 October to Sunday 24 October.
Central Regional Manager Andrew Wyatt said it is a chance to highlight the vital work of our SES volunteers.
"This year we've obviously had some challenges in relation to drought, bushfires and certainly COVID-19," Mr Wyatt said.
"Our volunteers have been actively working on the frontline supporting that."
Volunteers from the Central Region cover as far north as the Whitsunday region to as low as Agnes Waters, including towns like Mackay, Rockhampton and Gladstone.
