Our sincere congratulations to Callum O’Connell of Tom Price BFB/VFRS on being recognised as the Youth Achievement Award winner at the gala Awards dinner held on Friday night (7th September).
Callum signed up as an Emergency Services Cadet in 2014 and has developed into a well-respected mentor for his peers. He is the youngest member to join the Tom Price VFRS and BFB and always endeavours to help others in need. He has been involved in mitigation activities as well as fire safety preparedness at local primary schools. With his fellow cadets, Callum has helped devise a new road safety initiative to encourage road users to exercise more caution following a spate of fatalities and serious crashes along Tom Price- Paraburdoo Road.
