Two plaques commemorate those who have served in the Citizens Radio Emergency Service Teams (CREST). The original plaque was unveiled in 2008 with an additional plaque being unveiled in 2016. 

CREST commenced operations in September 1976 in most Australian capital cities and major towns. The initial role of CREST was to monitor the emergency frequencies on the Citizens Band Radio Service (CBRS), relaying calls for assistance from the public to the relevant emergency service.
