Jill O’Donnell – Plaque Award – Taranaki Land Search and Rescue group – 34 Years
As well as Jill’s many years as radio operator in the IMT, she is the group’s camp coordinator. She not only volunteers her time and radio skills to Search & Rescue, but also to AREC, NZ Police, Coastguard and Civil Defence. Jill is also the Comms SME for the group.
Group members have said that it is always reassuring to have Jill in the radio room with a familiar voice, wherever that happens to be in the Taranaki region.
Wynne Morgan – Plaque Award – Wellington Land Search and Rescue – 7 years
Wynne is a Field Team Member, and a long-term member of Wellington AREC.
Wynne tirelessly and often thanklessly maintain the Group equipment including the deployable field equipment and group deployable communication equipment. Additionally, Wynne takes on the role of Staging Area Manager for operational deployments.
A significant amount of his work is in the background, ensuring the field teams can rely upon their equipment. It is this hidden effort and his field work that is recognised in this award.
