Voting has now closed for the 2018 RFDS Queensland Hero Award. Thanks to everyone who voted and all our amazing Local Hero finalists.
We’d like to congratulate the exceptional 2018 RFDS Queensland Hero; Scott Shorten from Yowah.
Scott Shorten could be considered the backbone of the remote Yowah community. Whether he’s helping the RFDS or leading the Yowah SES, he is always there when needed. Scott has often been a cool head in emergency situations with his rescue skills and his unique brand of humour comforting those in their hour of need. His assistance over many years to the Flying Doctor medical clinic and emergency evacuation teams is truly outstanding.
