It’s an honour to get on board

THE Warwick Ambulance Station has paid tribute to its history, last week installing an honour board to recognise all its past superintendents, chairmen, officers-in-charge and presidents.

From 1900-1991, the Queensland Ambulance Service was called the Queensland Ambulance Transport Brigade, with a superintendent and chairman in charge.

After the change of name, they became officer-in-charge and president.

Current president Peter Stewart said it was important to honour those who had led the station.

"That's the history of the Warwick Ambulance Station on the board," Mr Stewart said.

"It's good to honour their contributions.

"We are very proud to have it up there."

Mr Stewart thanked the Warwick Shire Woodcrafters for donating the board.

"We are most grateful to the Woodcrafters Inc for their contribution," he said.

"We are going to hang it up and then give them morning tea as a way of saying thanks."
