Alice Springs fire fighter delegate Keith Hutton was recognised in this year’s Australia Day Honours. He was awarded the Emergency Service Medal.
Keith has been a passionate volunteer with the Northern Territory Emergency Service (NTES) for more than 12 years. He’s heavily involved in the training and mentoring of other volunteers. He’s also involved in developing the rescue capabilities of the team.
Keith was instrumental in the July 2015 vertical rescue off Uluru.
In December, 2016, we saw the final stage in our fight for a fair offer from the NT Government. The Honourable Michael Gunner was true to his word and resolved the bitter dispute with NT Firefighters.
