Donington Fire Station team earn top award for excellent service




Donington Fire Station's part-time firefighters are to be recognised for their excellent performance.

The team were due to receive the Beacon Station Award in Woodhall Spa last week but the ceremony was postponed due to ongoing emergency flood relief works in Wainfleet after The River Steeping burst its banks.

Donington has previously earned the Beacon Station Award, which goes to the fire station that consistently performs to an excellent standard.

Lincolnshire county councillor Nick Worth, executive member for emergency services, said:

"Donington Fire Station is crewed solely by a team of on-call fire fighters who live or work within five minutes of the station.

"The station has a fire engine, a co-responder vehicle and a high volume pump which was most notably used at the recent flooding in Wainfleet.

"Donington Fire Station has maintained 100 per cent availability across the last 12 months and I would like to offer my own thanks and congratulations to the crew there for their commitment and dedication to serving the people of Lincolnshire."

As well as performing their emergency fire and rescue work to a top standard, the firefighters are often seen in the community - earlier this month they attended both the Donington and Gosberton summer fairs.
