Spotlight on finalist - for VRA NSW Debra Scanes

Debra Scanes, from Binalong in the Yass Valley of southern NSW, has long gone beyond the confines of her village in helping people in trouble, such as in the 1997 Thredbo landslide, the 2003 Canberra bushfires and the 2012 Jugiong floods. A member of the Binalong Rescue Squad, where she has had many roles over 22 years, Debra has performed many duties, including assisted police in searches for lost bushwalkers and missing persons and attending accidents on the Hume Highway, Burley Griffin Way and Lachlan Valley Way. And she has gone beyond operation to organisational level at council and regional level, has campaigned for a local phone tower to ensure effective communication and has ensured Binaway’s sole police officer remain.

Spotlight on Finalist for VRA NSW Alan Johnson

Alan Johnson, who has served as president of the Taree Volunteer Rescue Association for 14 years and an emergency service volunteer for 48 years, is still attending “out calls” and attending management committee meetings. Caring, conscientious, punctual and dedicated, Alan chalked up an average of an hour a week for 26 years in voluntary service to the community 10 hours a week after the Taree VRA was formed in 1994. The VRA calculates that the total value of his contribution, based on $20 an hour, comes to more than $300,000. Alan has worked in other emergency services, such as the Rural Fire Service at Lightning Ridge, and has contributed in other community activities such surf lifesaving and hockey.
