Fire Cadets thanked by High Sheriff of Dorset


Date: 14th February, 2019

The High Sheriff of Dorset, Mrs Jacqueline Swift, has recently awarded two Fire Cadets with certificates of recognition as a way of saying ‘thank you’ for their support at prestigious events across the county over the past year.

Daisy Brown, a student at Shaftesbury School, and Bevin-Mae White, a student at Lytchett Minster School, completed a Fire Cadet programme in 2018, delivered by Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service at Blandford fire station.

The pair were nominated by staff and instructors as Fire Cadets of the year due to their commitment, dedication and attitude during the course.

Mrs Swift, supported by senior Fire and Rescue Service officers, presented her awards to each Cadet at their schools, during an assembly in front of their peers.

During each presentation, she said: “The Cadets supported a number of events to help celebrate the fantastic work that goes on across the county. This included them helping with setting up, meeting and greeting guests and interacting with members of the public. Both have been a great help to me over the past year, and I would like to thank them very much for their commitment and hard work.”

Rob Guy, Youth Intervention Manager at the Fire and Rescue Service, said: “We are extremely proud that two of our Fire Cadets have been able to support such high-profile events and I know they have done the Service, their schools, families and, most importantly, themselves proud. After speaking with them, it is obvious how much they have enjoyed the experience and the confidence it has given them.”
