CWA, Lions and Rotarians unpicking and removing badges. 
A two-day working bee was held in the Ambulance Victoria Drouin Branch facility over 19th and 20th October to prepare clothing for ‘Life Saving Services Victoria’ volunteers heading into flood recovery efforts in northern Victoria. Volunteers from a number of local organisations joined off-duty ambulance officers to de-badge and box around 500 pairs of overalls, 50 jumpers, 300 shirts, 30 raincoats and 15 helmets. And added to these were 250 pairs of cargo pants, 3 pairs of boots and had 20 pairs of donated gumboots.
Drouin Paramedic & Team Leader Jo Algie said “All have been distributed to a number of organisations who are helping out in the flood affected areas, but predominantly Life Saving Victoria who already have volunteers on the ground but will now be able to clothe them all in the same attire”.
“Massive shoutout to Neerim South ACO Gill Carter and the amazing volunteers from Rotary Club of Drouin, Drouin Lions, Country Women's Association-Drouin Branch and the Drouin Cemetery Trust” Jo added.
