I was invited to present the Surrey Fire and Rescue Service Annual Awards last evening. It was a privilege to meet so many dedicated fire men. Awards for long service, outstanding conduct, bravery and recognising individuals and crews. Some harrowing stories of life saving including what they did at Grenfell Tower. I was very pleased that the crew of my local Fire Station in Cranleigh won an award. I warmly congratulated all the award winners and my final words were:
“To all the recipients tonight, Surrey is proud of you”.
