WARRACKNABEAL CFA group oﬃcer Colin Newell will handover to
ﬁrst deputy Mick Morcom on July 1.
After 12 years as group oﬃcer, Mr Newell is taking a step back but will still be involved as Occupational Health and Safety oﬃcer.
Mr Morcom said after six years as ﬁrst deputy, he is happy to step up and take the responsibility.
“Col will still be involved in various positions within the group, but after 12 years I think he is entitled to take a step back,” Mr Morcom said.
Mr Morcom has been involved in the CFA since he was a child, starting at around 16 years of age and was involved in the Kellalac CFA.
Mr Morcom said Cameron Whelan will take over his position within the group as ﬁrst deputy. Mr Newell said he is appreciative of the support he has received over the years as a member and as group oﬃcer.
“I want to thank the brigades and Warrack Home Timber and Hardware for their support for allowing me to disappear at short notice,” he said.
