Rotary Districts of NSW Emergency Services Community Awards (RESCA) are asking the NSW Communities to help us recognise outstanding Community Service performed by paid and volunteer members of NSW Emergency Service Agencies through the Rotary Districts of NSW Emergency Services Community Awards (RESCA).
Rotary is seeking the unsung heroes in your communities that are often the quiet achievers, never asking for recognition but making a significant difference in your community.  Emergency Service Personnel can be nominated by a colleague, family member or community members and must be from one of the following seven Emergency Services Agencies:
Panels of independent judges will then assess nominees on three (3) key criteria:
  • Community service over and above the call of normal duties which best exemplifies Rotary‚Äôs motto of Service Above Self (i.e. community involvement when they are not working in their normal roles).
  • Personal attributes
  • Contribution to their organisation
Further criteria on how to nominate an Emergency Services officer can be found here.  Once you have gathered your information then:
