Nominations are now being accepted for the 2022 Rotary Clubs and Districts of NSW Emergency Services Community Awards (NSW RESCA), which recognise frontline emergency services personnel for service above and beyond the call of duty.
Member for Camden Peter Sidgreaves said the annual awards, now in their eighth year, provide an opportunity for Camden emergency services personnel to be recognised at a State-wide level.
“The recent weather events and flooding in Camden saw our emergency services working tirelessly and selflessly for to keep our community safe. I thank them from the bottom of my heart for all that they do,” Mr Sidgreaves said.
The Rotary Clubs and Districts of NSW Emergency Services Community Awards (NSW RESCA) recognise the dedication and service of emergency service personnel and volunteers from Fire and Rescue NSW, Marine Rescue NSW, NSW Ambulance, the NSW State Emergency Service, the NSW Rural Fire Service, Surf Life Saving NSW and VRA Rescue NSW.
“Emergency services personnel are not only first responders during times of crisis but they also perform essential work year-round, such as community engagement and fundraising,” Mr Sidgreaves said.
“I encourage members of our community to consider recognising a local hero by nominating them for an Emergency Services Community Award.”
Nominations will remain open until Tuesday, 31 May with finalists to be announced on Wednesday, 22 June at Parliament House. Nominations can be submitted at: https://nsw.rescawards.org.au.
An awards ceremony will be held on Saturday, 13 August at Bankstown Sports Club.
