Volunteers from the NSW State Emergency Service Moruya Unit have been recognised for their diligent service to their community at an awards ceremony at Moruya Bowling Club. On Saturday 27th February 2021, deserving members were presented with a number of awards including 3 members who assisted evacuees of the summer bushfires on Barlings Beach.
The Commissioner’s Certificate of Appreciation was presented to the three members who provided outstanding assistance during the Tomakin Bush Fire Emergency from 31 December 2019 to 2 January 2020. These members went above and beyond to assist the many local residents who evacuated their residences and sought refuge at Barlings Beach.
