As the Workcare Chaplain for the Warwickshire Fire and Rescue HQ and the Station in Leamington Spa, I was very pleased to be invited to the Annual Awards Evening on the 13th July 2017.
At the event, Long Service Medals were presented to members to recognise 20 years in the Service, as well as a number of other awards, celebrating support activities in the different communities around the County. These included Fire Prevention initiatives, an Arson Awareness programme and other "back office" work not normally seen and appreciated by the public but which is vital to support the front line service. It was a very inspiring and uplifting evening, particularly in the context of the recent terror attacks and the Grenfell fire but also recognising the many much lower level events which occur day by day but need the same selfless commitment and expertise offered across the Service in the County.
