Several local emergency services workers were recently awarded Bass Coast Shire Council Emergency Services Excellence Awards for their commitment and service to the local community.

The Picnic was attended by representatives from Victoria Police, Ambulance, Country Fire Authority, State Emergency Services, Australian Red Cross, Salvation Army, Parks Victoria, St. John Ambulance, Wonthaggi Surf Life Saving Club and Bass Coast Shire Council.

Diana Fleming from Australian Red Cross and Richard Williams from Rural Ambulance Victoria, both received a certificate from Bass Coast Shire Council in recognition of their excellent and long-term service to the community.

"It was an honour making this presentation to two people who have dedicated so much time and effort to their community," said Cr John Gains, Mayor of Bass Coast Shire Council.

The Mayor and Cr Mary O’Connor also presented certificates to the following people in recognition of their excellent service to their respective agencies as well as the community:
