NSW SES Blue Mountains Unit members had much cause for celebration on Friday night, with the recognition of outstanding members during their annual Awards Presentation.

The NSW SES Blue Mountains Unit has 107 active volunteer members who respond 24/7 to storm and flood events, plus regularly provide support to other emergency services such as the NSW Police by participating in land search operations for missing people. Unit members have also frequently travelled outside their area to assist other SES teams in major flood and storm responses.

The Hon. Shayne Mallard MLC represented the Minister for Emergency Services at the event and presented volunteers with awards.

“It is my pleasure to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of these dedicated volunteers and sincerely thank them.”

“The NSW SES volunteers of the Sydney Western Region have a long and proud history of assisting their community with invaluable emergency response during floods, storms and other emergencies.”

“There is no question that the people of this Region and this State know they can depend on the men and women in orange for help and protection during these emergencies” Mr Mallard said.

NSW SES Commissioner Mark Smethurst, was proud to be invited to attend the event and meet with the members of Blue Mountains Unit.

“Our volunteers respond rapidly to natural disasters and emergencies, saving lives and protecting our communities. I thank these people for their incredible community spirit and their ongoing contribution to our Service” said Commissioner Smethurst.
