  • 105 years of service honoured at Marine Rescue Central Coast
  • May 02, 2016

With a combined 105 years’ rescue experience, National Medal recipients (from left to right). Anthony Porter, Alan Howes, Brian Warburton, Al Morris and Norm Smith are ready for duty.

Five volunteer members of Marine Rescue Central Coast were recognised for more than a century’s service in a ceremony on Saturday, April 31.

Member for Robertson Lucy Wicks presented three members with the National Medal for 15 years’ service and another two with clasps to the Medal acknowledging their contribution over 25 and 35 years.

The National Medal recognises long and diligent service by members of recognised government and voluntary organisations who risk their lives or safety to protect or assist the community in enforcement of the law or in times of emergency or natural disaster. The Medal is first awarded after 15 years’ service.

Ms Wicks said the honours were richly deserved.

“Each of the three new recipients, Alan Howes, Anthony Porter and Brian Warburton, has selflessly served the community on the Central Coast for at least 15 years,” she said.

“It is an honour to pay tribute to their dedication to Marine Rescue and to the safety of boaters in our area.

“Al Morris has served a further 10 years since receiving his National Medal and has now achieved 25 years’ service and Norm Smith has served 20 years since receiving his Medal and has now completed an extraordinary 35 years’ volunteer service.

“The awarding of these medals and clasps is to enable the community to say thank you for the services rendered.”
