clASS OF 2015
Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service gave our wonderful Class of 2015 Apprentices a superb send off on 13 January at a celebration evening held at MFRS Headquarters.
Family and friends of the Apprentices were rightfully proud as the 12 Apprentices were presented with certificates by Deputy Chief Fire Officer Phil Garrigan, and were able to see the apprentices talk about their experiences in a superb video produced by Ellie Williams. It was a great way to celebrate the fantastic work the apprentices have done over the year they have been with the Service. We wish them well as they move on to bright futures.
