Meet Brooke our newest Local Legend! Brooke volunteers as an Ambulance Community Officer for her rural town of Derrinallum VIC, nestled at the bottom of Mount Elephant….the closest Ambulance station is roughly 60 minutes away….a long wait in any emergency!
Not only is she a volunteer she looks after 400 acres with her husband & 3 boys, runs a trucking Company & fits in work as a registered nurse somehow! On her days off she volunteers to be on call with the Ambulance in case of any triple zero calls in the area.
When asked why…with an already full plate she decided to volunteer Brooke said ‘…because without people helping out we would not have an ambulance close by, our nearest station is 40-60 minutes away. It’s reassuring as a mum & for the community to know that help is close by.”
This is what makes Australia great & why we think Brooke deserves to be a #locallegend.
