Trevor’s cancer should be deemed a HOD from a rescue response incident in Blacktown to a chemical spill.
Trevor Watkins was a Police Rescue Operator who attended the same incident as Ronald Walter McGOWN.
Ron died on the 10 June 1998 within 3 months of being diagnosed with Liver Cancer.
Ron IS mentioned on the Police Wall of Remembrance but Trevor is NOT mentioned on the same wall.
Doctors are reported to have linked the two Police and their disease to the chemical spill event.
