Tribute to Inspector Kim Simpson

Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore) (18:29:49):

Tonight I acknowledge the sad passing of Fire and Rescue NSW Northern Zone Commander Inspector Kim Simpson. Throughout his near four-decade career, Kim was described by his friends and colleagues as a dedicated firie, with immeasurable compassion, empathy, good humour, respectfulness and kindness at the forefront of his character. Every day, our local firies put themselves in harm's way to protect our local community—a service that we will never be able to truly thank them for. From the outpouring of grief from fire stations all over the northern zone, it is clear the Kim was a man of great character. I know that a number of my colleagues would have known Kim. I enjoyed getting to know him, and I respect and appreciate all of his contributions to my local fire stations. Those who knew him much better than I did felt better for knowing and working with him. I extend my condolences, and those of my entire community who benefited from his service and contributions, to his family and friends. Vale, Kim Simpson.
