“We want the volunteers to know that we respect and appreciate the sacrifice they make”, said Aussie Pumps’ Warwick Lorenz. “Without volunteers, the amount of property damage, livestock and human lives lost would be enormous. Not everyone seems to really appreciate the effort and the value of the unpaid volunteer services. These members who put themselves at risk to protect the property and lives of others”, he said.
