nt awards
“The awards ceremony also included a very special award this year. The RSPCA recognised the work of Crews from Newton-le-Willows, St Helens and Croxteth who saved a horse from drowning. I am extremely proud of their actions, which were in the best traditions of the Fire and Rescue Service.”
Firefighters from Newton-le-Willows, St Helens and the Search and Rescue Team were presented with Watch Commendations earlier this year for the horse rescue.
Chief Fire Officer Dan Stephens said: “The most valuable and important resource of any organisation is its people and I’m delighted we have so many who stay with us and contribute over a long period to our success.
“This year, for the first time, the special awards event we hold for Long Service and Good Conduct Medals included the presentation of Attendance Certificates to five of our staff. These certificates are awarded to staff who have not been absent for 15 and 25 years respectively. The certificates illustrate significant commitment to the Service and are a fantastic achievement.
