  • Remembering our volunteers who lost their lives in the line of duty
  • October 11, 2014

Three marine rescue volunteers will be among those honoured at today’s Emergency Services Volunteer Memorial Service.


The annual service is held to remember the men and women who have paid the ultimate price while giving their time to protect our community and pay tribute to all our NSW emergency services volunteers.


Marine rescue volunteers David Waddell, from Ballina, Edward Bristow, from Port Stephens, and Dennis Matthews, from Lake Macquarie, are among those whose names are inscribed on the Volunteers Memorial at Mrs Macquarie’s Point, commemorating their service and sacrifice.


Marine Rescue NSW volunteers, Commissioner Stacey Tannos and members of the MRNSW Board of Directors will join Police and Emergency Services Minister Stuart Ayres and members of the emergency services at the Memorial.


Speaking at last year’s service, MRNSW Chaplain Richard Wrightson said: “Volunteers are ordinary community men and women who both willingly and deliberately set aside time and energy that is valuable to them in their usual daily life for the safety and wellbeing of others. Their commitment is neither casual nor shallow. They are committed to giving of their best. Participating in an emergency service has the effect of drawing people together and bonds them as family.”
