Ormskirk Advertiser - - Martin Mere -

COUNTY Coun­cil­lor Nikki Hen­nessy, a mem­ber of The Lan­cashire Com­bined Fire Author­ity, vis­ited her lo­cal fire sta­tions on Fri­day in Orm­skirk and Skelmers­dale.

Cllr Hen­nessy, who used to work for Lan­cashire Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice as a care ser­vices li­ai­son of­fi­cer, was given a tour of the fire en­gines, fire sta­tions and sat down to talk to the firefighters about their ex­pe­ri­ences.

She said: “I have huge ad­mi­ra­tion for the firefighters, both who­le­time and re­tained, and I want to thank them for keep­ing our com­mu­ni­ties safe.

“I know from my time as both an em­ployee of Lan­cashire Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice and as a mem­ber of The Lan­cashire Com­bined Fire Author­ity that firefighters are in­cred­i­bly brave and very pro­fes­sional. This was high­lighted to me when I was talk­ing to them about some of the fires and in­ci­dents they have at­tended and when they gave me a demon­stra­tion of equip­ment.”

This Saturday, Oc­to­ber 14, Orm­skirk Fire Sta­tion is host­ing a car wash be­tween 10am and 3pm to raise money for The Fire Fight­ers Char­ity which helps treat in­jured firefighters and their fam­i­lies.
