STATEMENTS BY MEMBERS – LITHGOW STATE EMERGENCY SERVICE

Our State Emergency Service volunteers serve a cause greater than themselves to protect life and property in our country communities. There are 26 members in the Lithgow SES unit. They are an integral part of the Lithgow community and they are always there when we need them. Just last week members were out responding to calls due to the strong winds and rain in the district. I'd like to pay tribute to all of the Lithgow SES members today, including SES unit commander, Deirdre Cummins; SES deputy unit commander, Anthony Davis; Brett Thorpe; Caitlin Baines; Colin O'Brien; Daniel Parsons; Dario Tascini; David Veen; Emma Jeffery; Evonne Balcar; Felix Harris; Joshua Hutchinson; Joshua Hyland; Leslie Garland; Liam Parsons; Linda Garland; Luke Carter; Michael Williams; Reagan Scarrabelotti-Quin; Rhys O'Neill; Robert Davis; Robert Kitchener; Sally Lord; Shaun Murphy; Shona Johnson and Steven Saville. I'd like to thank all SES volunteers across New South Wales for the vital work that they do. Our communities owe them a great debt of gratitude and it's a privilege to be able to honour the Lithgow SES members in this House today.
