A PASSION to help the community and become a firefighter has led to 15-year-old Bedfordale cadet Lachlan Bormolini receiving a state award for his efforts.

Lachlan was the winner of the CWA of WA’s Young Volunteer of the Year Award last month.

“I was pretty excited to receive the award,” he said.

He joined the bushfire cadets in Roleystone when he was 12 years old and transferred to the Bedfordale brigade in 2014 because it was closer to home.

“I’ve always wanted to be a firey so I came down here and saw what the guys did and then I joined up,” he said.

“It’s like a family down here and we all help each other out and do the same jobs.”
