The City of Logan has once again dug deep to help three organisations that help keep the city safe.

LifeFlight, Volunteer Marine Rescue and Logan Beaudesert Crime Stoppers have received $5000 each as Council’s top emergency service charities.

Every year, the Jacobs Well Volunteer Marine Rescue squadron and RACQ LifeFlight helicopter rescue work around the clock to assist Logan residents who find themselves in life threatening situations.

Logan Beaudesert Crime Stoppers also works to help keep the city a safe and liveable community through the prevention and detection of crime.

City of Logan Acting Deputy Mayor Trevina Schwarz said thousands of people owed their lives to the dedication of the three organisations which in turn are largely supported by volunteers, donations and information from the public.

“It’s very reassuring to know that there are organisations out there devoted to keeping us all safe,” Cr Schwarz said.

“Closer to home, Logan Beaudesert Crime Stoppers works tirelessly to stamp out crime.

“Together these three valuable community services make Logan a better place to live, and Council is proud to provide financial support to help them to help us.”
