David Price SESVA President and Committee Members congatulates Errol Ernest (Bloo) HOARE of the Australind SES Unit on being awarded the Emergency Services Medal ESM. I am sure all SES Volunteers would join with me in offering their congratulations.
Mr Errol Ernest (Bloo) HOARE, Australind WA 6233
Since joining the Australind Unit, State Emergency Service (SES) in Western Australia, Mr Hoare has held the positions of Storeperson for 3 years, Assistant Local Manager for 4 years and Local Manager for 5 years; he is currently the Stores Manager and adviser to management. Mr Hoare always put the needs of the Unit and the community first, making himself available 24 hours per day 7 days a week. Apart from the usual meeting hours, he averages an additional 20 hours per week performing tasks such as administration, building, vehicle and surrounding ground maintenance, the purchasing of materials and liaising with local government personnel. His involvement within the community is further evidenced by his participation in such events as the Eaton Foreshore Festival, Australia Day Breakfast and Police Charity Golf Day and organising and demonstrating extensive SES roles within the community and schools. Mr Hoare organises and participates at many training exercises, both on a local and regional level, and his local knowledge is a tremendous asset to the Unit as he is able to source all manner of resources when and if required. Mr Hoare is also involved in the local Scouting movement, Navy Reserve Cadets, Rifle Club, various sporting groups, and Druids Lodge of which he held the position of Grand President of Western Australia. Mr Hoare has served the SES and his local community with distinction
