Guernsey Airport Firefighters recognised for their long service16th June 2021
Four members of the Guernsey Airport Fire and Rescue Service were recently commended, at an awards ceremony at Government House for their two decades of service.
Fire Service Manager Thomas De Carteret, Watch Manager Andrew Redwood and firefighters Mark Batiste alongside Stuart Mauger were all recognised by Guernsey's Lieutenant-Governor Sir Ian Corder who presented the Fire Brigade Long Service and Good Conduct Medal to all four firefighters.
Watch Manager Kevin Rabey was unable to attend the ceremony and will receive his medal at a later date.
Those eligible for the Fire Brigade Long Service and Good Conduct Medal are full-time and part-time members of all ranks in Local Authority Fire and Rescue Services in England and Wales, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service, or Airport Fire Services across the British Isles.
Guernsey Ports’ Fire Service Manager Thomas De Carteret said:
“I’m very proud of the Guernsey Airport Fire and Rescue Service staff being recognised by the Lieutenant-Governor in this way. As one of the recipients myself, I can reflect on so many changes in best practice and technology in airport firefighting over the last two decades. The experience and knowledge these award recipients have gained in 20 years of service are already being passed on to the next generation of airport firefighters.”
