This weekend saw South Coogee Volunteer Fire-fighter Nathan Ramage win the FESA Youth Achievement Award for which he had been nominated. Unable to choose between Joshua Lourenco and Nathan the Awards Committee awarded both the Award.
Nathan received his award from the Department of Fire and Emergency Services newly appointed Commissioner Wayne Gregson. Commissioner Gregson spoke about the commitment that volunteers within Western Australia give to supporting their community. He was pleased to see the next generation of Fire fighting Leaders being acknowledged at the awards and was very impressed with the quality of both nominations.
The award is well deserved recognition for Nathan who has put in lots of time and effort this year. Margaret River, Bindoon, The Perth Storms are just a few of the deployments Nathan was sent on. His involvement in many of the Brigades committees has been a great assistance to the running of the brigade. Nathan’s youthful enthusiasm and willingness to help his fellow brigade members and the larger communities of Cockburn, Perth Metro and Regional Areas is something he should be proud of.
South Coogee are lucky to have committed, enthusiastic members like Nathan in the brigade. With members such as Nathan the brigade can only go from strength to strength.
