New Service holds first awards ceremony


Date: 21st June, 2016

Sixteen Long Service and Good Conduct medals will be presented to members of Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service at a special ceremony on 22 June.

The Lord Lieutenant of Wiltshire, Sarah Troughton, and the Vice Lord Lieutenant of Dorset, James Gibson-Fleming, will present the medals at the Guildhall in Salisbury.

Long Service and Good Conduct medals are awarded by Royal Warrant on behalf of HM the Queen for “exemplary fire service”. Although they recognise 20 years within the Fire Service, they are not awarded automatically; each recipient must be personally recommended by the Chief Fire Officer and the criteria include “meritorious service and good conduct.”

Chief Fire Officer Darran Gunter said: “The annual medals ceremony is always a special occasion, but this year is particularly special as it’s the first for our new combined Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service. As well as the recipients of our Long Service and Good Conduct medals, the evening is an opportunity to celebrate success across the organisation, from commendations to professional qualifications, so it is a time for us all to feel very proud.”
