FOREWORD
It has been a busy month for the Service with a variety of call-outs and work in the community.
One member of staff has also reached a milestone 40 years with the Service. To read her story visit Page 9.
Staff have also been working hard in the community and with partner agencies to keep people safe over the bonfire period. See Page 12.
A huge effort was made by staff at headquarters, district prevention staff and firefighters who visited elderly people in communities on Merseyside during Ageing Safely Week. See Page 10 and 11.
Thank you for all your contributions for Hot News this month and please keep us updated with your fantastic stories.
