On Friday June 2nd I was privileged
to be invited to Egremont Fire Station for a special event - the Dedication
of a Board commemorating every firefighter who has served in the town since
the inception of the very first Fire Brigade.
It was the brainchild of Crew Manager Dave McDowell. The crew have raised all the money needed to pay for the project and it has taken some years to research all the names and dates. The final result is a superb tribute.
CM Dave McDowell wlecomed guests and explained the project.
Area Manager Nick O' Key was invited to conduct the unveiling.
A Prayer of Dedication was led by Chaplain Nick Mark.
The Board in more detail.
