Noosa mayor Tony Wellington has thanked local SES controller Stan Ryan for more than three decades of service to the local community.
Mr Ryan will soon step down, ending a 35-year chapter with the local SES, and Cr Wellington said the veteran’s contribution to the safety, amenity and wellbeing of the community had been “an enduring one”.
“Stan himself has been named Regional Member of the Year and been awarded the Minister’s Cup, denoting outstanding service and commitment to the SES. He has also been awarded the Emergency Services Medal,” Cr Wellington said.
Mr Ryan has been both Deputy Local Controller and Local Controller during his time with the SES. It was under his leadership the Noosa SES was awarded Operational Unit of the Year, and Unit of the Year at the SES Week Awards.
“Stan has trained many SES and other emergency services personnel, and participated in a great many SES operations. He’s given countless hours of his time in the service of that organisation,” Cr Wellington said.
Besides his commitment to the SES, Mr Ryan has dedicated much of his time and skills to community groups such as The Camphor Laurel Initiative and Cooroy Future Group.
“Stan’s selfless and heartfelt willingness to give his time for the betterment of our community makes him an exemplar for us all. Noosa Council congratulates Stan for his dedicated service to the SES,” Cr Wellington said.
“I wish him all the very best for the future.”
