A fellow members family needs help!

Merryl Dray

Merryl Dray, one of our SES volunteers has passed away while responding to a call for assistance in Coolana on Friday night.


Merryl (62) was a much loved member of the Lowood SES Group where she volunteered more than 520 hours of her time over the last four and a half years. Merryl was trained in storm damage response, first aid and traffic control and was passionate about help her community.


Consequently, the Queensland State Emergency Service Volunteer Association has opened a bank account for Merryl’s family and in conjunction with Queensland State Emergency Service are inviting not only the orange community but the community far and wide to help raise funds to assist Merryl Family.

Funds are accessible to Merrly Dray's family at any point and are transferred directly into the nominated account.

This account is hosted by QBank and administrated by Queensland State Emergency Service Volunteer Association Inc. on behalf of Merryl Dray's Family.

This fund is independently overseen and audited by Mr. John Capes OAM, Western Australia.

This fund is coordinated in conjunction with the Director of Queensland State Emergency Service on behalf of Queensland State Emergency Service.
