On Wednesday 4th May Ruth Cadbury MP joined Councillor Tony Louki to mark Firefighters Memorial Day at Isleworth Fire Station.
This visit was a chance to remember that over 2,300 firefighters have died in the line of duty, and to also meet with the fire crew locally and hear about their ongoing work.
Speaking after her visit Ruth said,
‘‘Our firefighters run into danger every day and perform a great duty to keep us all safe. I know that local residents greatly value the amazing and heroic work they do, along with their tireless community work to educate and inform about the risks of fire.
Firefighter Memorial Day gives us a chance to remember all those who’ve died protecting their communities. I was thinking not only of their sacrifice but also of their family and friends.
I will continue to work to support our firefighters and the continued work they do to keep us all safe.’’
