Cootamundra: Rewarding Les Carr

Les Carr, a committed supporter of Can Assist, has been awarded the Australian Fire Service Medal in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours List — this is the highest honor a firefighter can receive. Fire Commissioner Paul Baxter congratulated Captain Carr for playing an integral part in protecting his local community and surrounding areas. “During the 2019/20 Black Summer Bushfires, Captain Carr provided critical leadership to his firefighters in extremely difficult conditions.”

“He is committed to protecting both the mental wellbeing and physical safety of his crew at all times.”
