Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Working For You - Ju­dith Ton­ner

Coat­bridge MP Hugh Gaffney showed his sup­port for the na­tion’s fire­fight­ers by at­tend­ing a West­min­ster event hosted by the Fire Brigades Union.

The event was ar­ranged to recog­nise and cel­e­brate the in­valu­able work fire­fight­ers do in keep­ing com­mu­ni­ties safe.

Mr Gaffney said: “It was a priv­i­lege to have the op­por­tu­nity to meet some of the pro­fes­sion­als who do this in­valu­able, chal­leng­ing work.

“Fi r e f i g hters who re­sponded to the Gren­fell Tower fire had their train­ing and pro­fes­sion­al­ism tested to the limit.

“And all MPs should sup­port our fire and res­cue ser­vices in the in­ter­ests of both pub­lic and fire­fighter safety.”

The “love your fire­fight­ers” event at the Houses of Par­lia­ment was at­tended by more than 70 MPs, who heard a speech from FBU gen­eral sec­re­tary Matt Wrack urg­ing them to “sup­port the in­valu­able work fire­fight­ers do in their com­mu­ni­ties, keep­ing us all safe.”
