Community Recognition Statement - Gordon Hill
Community Recognition Statement delivered in the Fifty-Seventh Parliament of New South Wales by the Member for Barwon Roy Butler on 26 February 2020.
Mr Gordon Hill has dedicated his life to helping others in need and sometimes on the worst day of their lives.
As a critical incident support service peer with the Rural Fire Service and later The State Emergency Services, Gordon has helped members deal with stress and trauma of fighting fires and seeing horrific scenes for over 22 years.
Gordon has over 45 years' experience in the Rural Fire Service and over 40 years' experience in the State Emergency Services and Volunteer Rescue Association.
Gordon is also the Duty Chairman of the Cobar Health Council, a member of the Western Primary Health Network Community Council and Rotary Club of Cobar.
Gordon was recognised for his outstanding commitment to the Community in 2018 and was awarded the Emergency Services Medal in the Queen's Birthday honours list, the New South Wales Senior Volunteer of the year and Overall New South Wales Volunteer of the year.
Gordon isn't slowing down as he continues to offer support and aid to the drought stricken farmers through his work with the Rotary Club of Cobar.
I would like to personally thank Mr Gordon Hill for his tireless efforts for his community. A truly inspiring man.
