Fire and Rescue Service holds awards ceremony


Date: 20th May, 2019

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service held its annual awards ceremony at The Guildhall, Salisbury on Thursday 16 May.

Long Service and Good Conduct Medals were presented on behalf of HM The Queen by the Lord Lieutenant of Dorset, Mr Angus Campbell and Vice Lord Lieutenant of Wiltshire, Mr William Wyldbore-Smith.

Other distinguished guests included the High Sheriff of Wiltshire, David Scott; the High Sheriff of Dorset, Philip Warr; Peter Holland, Chief Inspector Crown Premises Fire Safety at the Home Office; Mayor of Salisbury, Cllr Mike Osment; members of Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Authority; representatives of partner agencies such as local councils and the police; and families and friends of those receiving medals and awards.

With the Service’s headquarters based in Salisbury, the Guildhall has hosted the annual awards since the organisation came into being in 2016. This year’s event was sponsored by Capita, Bristol Uniforms, Active Informatics and Advantage Digital Print.

Chief Fire Officer Ben Ansell said: “Our annual awards ceremony is our chance to take stock, recognise the extraordinary work being done in all parts of our organisation, and to feel real pride in how we help individuals, businesses, partner agencies and the wider communities across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, Dorset, Swindon and Wiltshire to live safer and healthier lives. It was an excellent evening, and my thanks go to everyone who attended for their support.”
