I AM Charlie Wroth’s sister and would like to express my thoughts on his dismissal by St John Ambulance.
This followed the Emergency Services Volunteer Forum in Northam on July 3 hosted by the National Party at which he expressed comments and concerns.

It shows a complete lack of comprehension by paid employees of St John to the work, commitment and sacrifice of the organisation’s volunteers.Read more
There is an alarming disparity in medical outcomes for country people compared with those living in the city.
The country volunteers of St John Ambulance play an important role in mitigating these statistics.
Because of this, supporting volunteers and appreciating their feedback should be a priority.
The recent action of St John to dismiss Charlie is definitely inconsistent with their stated values.
I feel that Toodyay and the surrounding areas can ill afford to lose a person with such experience, dedication and passion.
