Chief Fire Officer Paul Fuller said: “Events such as this serve as a great opportunity to justifiably celebrate the successes of our staff.
“It is great to be able to honour their personal achievement, fundraising activities, or long and distinguished service to the local community. It also gives us a chance to thank their families, whose own contribution is invaluable.”
