Together with 10 other club members, he went through the training program and has been an active member for the 37 years. Mr Withnell said the dwindling numbers at the branch could hinder service to the community. "If we cannot recruit new members, the situation is becoming serious," he said.

"About 10 years ago we used to have 30 active members and we are now down to eight. "We have a couple of younger people, which is fantastic, but the rest of the crew is ageing. "We need a bigger pool of volunteers from all walks of life to contribute their skills and share the workload. "If volunteers don't come forward to help their community, we are all in trouble.

"Being a volunteer is rewarding and enjoyable and I believe I got as much out of it as I put in. "There is a great camaraderie among the members and I have made many friends and learned useful life skills. "People we help as part of our duties are very appreciative and it gives me great personal satisfaction when a job is well done."

Mr Withnell said duties covered a wide range of activities from vehicle rescues to searches for missing people and storm damage. He encourages men and women of any age to consider joining. He said no previous experience or skills were required, just a willingness to learn and enthusiasm to give back to the community. Contact manager Vaughan Byrd on 0404 800 302 for more information.

Harvey State Emergency Service volunteers are under pressure with just eight active members to look after an area from Benger to Yarloop and Binningup to the border of the Shire of Boddington. Bruce Withnell is one of them and the longest-serving volunteer at the Harvey branch.

He joined the Harvey Volunteer Emergency Services in 1978 when, as a member of the Harvey Radio Club, he helped with communications during Cyclone Alby and was asked whether he wanted to join.
