Compassion and kindness

Humanity. Brianna Hite gives her time to provide emergency service assistance to those in need. 
The Circular Head Young Citizen of the Year’s commitment to her community shines through in her genuine and thoughtful nature, in everything she does. 
The 26-year-old is a volunteer ambulance officer in Smithton whose drive to develop her skills and contribute to her community is evident. A volunteer for two years now, Brianna has logged over 770 hours with the local service, spending weekends at the station and training regularly. 
She values the essential work emergency services provide, especially in rural and remote areas, and often travels the coast to provide this assistance. 
“I don’t do it for me, I do it for the community,” she says. “It’s about giving back to my community. 
“This is such a small community and we do so much for each other, I’m just doing my little bit.”
Her passion goes beyond her work at the ambulance station. The Emmerton Park employee demonstrates her caring nature in conversations with residents and was instrumental in establishing a program to foster social interaction and connection between youngsters and residents. 
Brianna also coordinates various activities and fundraising events with the Emmerton Park Auxiliary. 
Volunteering her time to the ambulance service every chance she gets means Brianna is on the go most days, though always finds time for the relationships she cherishes with friends and family.
