Roadside honour for South West emergency services | Photos

The Augusta Margaret River community jumped at the chance to applaud the tireless efforts of local and out of area volunteers at a late night shopping event in Margaret River on Thursday.

The recent Calgardup-Boranup bushfire demonstrated once again the dedication of volunteers who form the majority of emergency service groups and brigades in the region, working to protect homes and lives in the event of fires, accidents and other rescue situations.

The crowd offered hearty cheers and applause as the emergency vehicles made their way down Bussell Highway, stopping for high fives and waves while parents held their children up to say a personal thanks to the service personnel.
