Easternwell subcontractor's community kindness

Easternwell subcontractor Optimum Transport Services donated first aid kits to help treat injured wildlife affected by recent bush fires.

Optimum Transport Services provides transport and trucking services for Easternwell’s rig operations in the Surat Basin.

Optimum Transport Services employee, Tom Inch said first aid kits are replaced every two years to ensure the quality of the medical items.

“I am a Rural Fire Brigade volunteer and I heard through Brooklands Rural Fire Brigade that Wildlife Rescue South Burnett needed materials to treat injured wildlife affected by the recent bushfires.”

“Instead of disposing of the first aid items I thought it would be a good idea to put them to good use.”

Brooklands Rural Fire Brigade 2nd Officer Grant Newson said Wildlife Rescue South Burnett greatly appreciated the donation of first aid kits which supports their work in caring for injured wildlife.

Wildlife Rescue South Burnett is a wildlife rescue group in the South Burnett Queensland however they cover a large area extending will outside the South Burnett Shire. They have 18 members who all participate in the rescue, rehabilitation and release of wildlife, including koalas, kangaroos, wallabies and all common species of birds.
