FOUR brave Evesham firefighters have been recognised for their outstanding service and commitment to the fire service at a prestigious awards ceremony.

Last Friday Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service staff gathered at the Guildhall in Worcester for the annual Worcestershire Awards Ceremony.

The ceremony began with The Fire Brigade’s Long Service and Good Conduct Medals which were presented, on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen, by the Vice Lord Lieutenant of Worcestershire, Lady Morrison.

These awards went to members of staff who had each completed either 20 or 30 years service and Evesham Crew Commander Steve Gould and Firefighter Paul Miles both received medals for their 20 years service.

Liam Burtenshaw and Kyle Annis were also presented with Letters of Congratulations from the Chief Fire Officer Nathan Travis.

Kyle’s efforts were recognised for performing CPR on a member of public whilst off duty in Cheltenham and continued to assist Paramedics on route to hospital by performing CPR in the ambulance.

And Liam was awarded after he stopped at a motorbike accident whilst off duty and performed trauma care on a female motorcyclist.

Chief Fire Officer Nathan Travis said: “It was an honour to once again be able to formally recognise some of the fantastic achievements and commitment of our staff and members of the community.

“All of the accolades given were very well-deserved and each recipient has contributed towards keeping the people of Herefordshire and Worcestershire safe.”
