Thank you to the voters for acknowledging Robin's efforts. As we are a voluntary institution, the prize money will open many doors. We are truly grateful. We will be putting the prize money to good use in the form of new training aids and specialised equipment for the area we work in. We will also upgrade some of the facilities at the station. To the other three finalists, you all went above and beyond the call of duty. You give people hope and second chances. From one fraternity to another, we salute you.'Every day, South Africa's emergency and rescue personnel give 100% to saving lives. Not because it is their job, but because they wholeheartedly believe that every single life is worth saving. More often than not their stories of courage go unrecognised and unrewarded.
