Thanks to everyone who voted for the 2019 RFDS Queensland Local Hero and to all our amazing Local Hero finalists.
We’d like to congratulate the exceptional 2019 RFDS Queensland Heroes from Mt Isa; Jim Lillecrapp, Simon Steele, Belinda Worlein and Robert Worlein.
Simon, Jim, Robert and Belinda were the first responders to a life threatening boating accident out on Lake Julius on Christmas Eve last year. Their calm, caring and skilful assistance meant that the family involved in the accident were able to receive the best quality care as quickly as possible. The family are now out of hospital and are incredibly grateful to Simon, Jim, Belinda and Robert. What they did as first responders was literally life-saving.
Don’t forget to come back next year to nominate or vote for our 2020 RFDS Local Heroes.
