Fire and Rescue

Today, I was given a tour of Walton Fire and Rescue Depot. Les Dodd and Paul Kenny explained how the station operates, including the mix of fire response and water-based incidents they have to deal with, coupled with the preventative side of their work in the community. I met with local officers (pictured below), and we discussed a range of matters – from the implications of the Surrey Fire and Rescue review, to the practical impact of health and safety regulation. I was thoroughly impressed with their dedication and professionalism, and very grateful for the tour and feedback.
