I am very grateful to GM John
Wall for the invitation to attend the Official Opening at Bootle and in
the absence of the local Chaplain to Dedicate the new Fire Station.
After the Opening Ceremony by Councillor Barry Doughty, Firefighter Paul Mansergh was presented with his Long-Service and Good Conduct Medal by the Chief Fire Officer.
The firefighters then gave two demonstrations. Firstly a ladder drill and secondly an extrication from a vehicle following an RTC.
Family and friends were amongst the guests plus Fire Cadets from Workington.
Cllr Doughty unveiled the plaque.
Ahead of the presentation to Ff Mansergh, Group Manager Wall read the citation.
