Chief Fire Of­fi­cer Paul Han­cock said he was de­lighted the ser­vice had been short­listed.

“To be recog­nised and ac­knowl­edged by our peers is a tes­ta­ment to the Team Cheshire ethos demon­strated by all our staff” he said.

“I am par­tic­u­larly pleased with the nom­i­na­tions for Chris John­ston and Lu­cas Cooper who showed tremen­dous brav­ery in sav­ing the life of Florence Mil­lichap.”

Two mem­bers of the public, Chris John­ston from Liver­pool and Lu­cas Cooper from Ellesmere Port, were nom­i­nated by the Ser­vice and have also been short­listed in the Adult Hero cat­e­gory af­ter sav­ing the life of a 94-yearold woman from a fire. The win­ners will be an­nounced in Oc­to­ber at a cer­e­mony in Lon­don.
