Most of our Melbourne clients would remember Younes Aly as the guy that delivered their stuff. Mildly mannered and pleasantly spoken, Younes has been with Kirks for 12 years and is a valued member of staff. He now drives the country run through the Yarra Valley to Yea and return 3 days a week and coordinates the ground support for our air freight program.
On the weekend Younes enjoys spending time with his family, camping, four wheel driving, sea kayaking and a host of other outdoor pursuits. When the wind blows or the rain tumbles or there is a fatal accident in the middle of the night, you can be guaranteed that Younes will be out there in his orange overalls in his capacity of communications officer at the Broadmeadows SES.
Younes has been a tireless volunteer to the SES for 11 years. On many occasions Younes has arrived at work having been up all night securing somebody's roof or sandbagging a Levy bank. His commitment to the service(SES) is inspiring.
The recent storms and floods in the New South Wales Hunter Valley called on the resources of SES volunteers from other states. As communications officer for Broadmeadows, Younes was keen to join the other volunteers and help out.
The SES doesn't just tarp down roofs and clear fallen trees. They are a highly trained group of motivated individuals. During his recent trip to the Hunter Valley, the unit was called to a flood evacuation of a baby from a threatened house. Younes was the person who responded to the call and was praised by all including the local and national media.
Congratulations Younes - All of us at Kirks are proud to be associated with you and encourage your continued commitment to the SES and the communities of the Northern Suburbs.
