St John Ambulance Ku-ring-gai Divisional Awards

10 November 2020

Mr ALISTER HENSKENS (Ku-ring-gai) (21:09:55): I recently attended the Ku-ring-gai division awards night for St John Ambulance. The ceremony recognised the extraordinary efforts undertaken by members of St John Ambulance. On behalf of St John Ambulance and the Premier, I had the honour of presenting the Bushfire Citations to eight deserving volunteers for their contributions during the 2019-2020 black summer. The final and most prestigious award of the night was the St John Save a Life Award, which was presented to David Kerr. David was called to the pool area of his unit complex to find a child unconscious. Through his quick action and effective CPR, the child survived. David also received a First Bar to the Service Medal of the Order for 15 years of service. I am truly inspired by the great work that Ku-ring-gai volunteers do every day for our community. I congratulate all awardees and thank all members for their significant contributions to the running of an outstanding division.
