Commissioner Darren Klemm AFSM;
Sabine Winton MLA (Member for Wanneroo);
Councillor Peter Scharf (Shire of Dandaragan);

Our awesome members of Jurien Bay Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service and their families were also in attendance and the facilities were decorated to reflect this worthy occasion.
Recipients from Marine Rescue:
Suzanne Troup – 5 years Service Medal.
Chrissy Heu – 15 years service clasp and National Medal.
Robin Randall – 25 years service clasp and National Medal.
The National Medal for long and diligent service is Australia’s most awarded civilian medal. It is presented to members of recognised government and voluntary organisations who risk their lives to protect the community in enforcement of the law or in times of emergency or natural disaster.
Congratulations to all recipients. We all appreciate your quantity and quality time you dedicate to Marine Rescue Jurien Bay and also to your loved ones and families who allow you to walk out at any given time to attend the tower, vessel deployment and training. Thank you all so much!!!
The biggest finale was the acknowledgement to Noel Wark for 65 years of service in the Firies - a tremendous and mammoth milestone. Congratulations Noel – very well deserved indeed. Photo credit: Jason G Harris Photography.
