TAMWORTH’S TOM COOPER RECEIVES AUSTRALIAN FIRE SERVICE MEDAL

Tamworth’s Fire Zone Commander Tom Cooper has been recognised for his tireless efforts to keep the community safe.

Mr Cooper travelled to Sydney’s Government House yesterday, where he received a prestigious Australian Fire Service Medal.

It’s an honour which he says caught him off guard.

“I think one of the best things I ever did was come to the country, because there’s so many projects where if you have a lot of energy, you can really contribute. I think that was part of the reason I was awarded this achievement.”
