Eccles Fire Cadets receive Mayor's Citizen Award

CADETS from Eccles Community Fire Station have been honoured for their achievements, including a quick response to a medical emergency.


The young cadets were recognized at the ceremony hosted by the mayor for their outstanding contribution to the community of Salford and Manchester in 2017, by receiving the Mayor’s Citizen Award.

Councillor Peter Connor, Ceremonial Mayor of Salford presented the accolade at his office on April 4.

The team have gone above and beyond their voluntary duties, and even sprung into action during a trip to the Trafford Centre in support of a medical emergency involving a young person.

Cadet Instructor, James Bennet said: “The cadets are fantastic ambassadors for GMFRS and young people.”

As well as fire service open days and events, numerous charity and fundraising initiatives, the cadets even have a representative on the Greater Manchester Youth Combined Authority set up by Mayor Andy Burnham.

The event was a fantastic opportunity for the cadet instructors and the rest of the fire service to celebrate their achievement and share their pride for these young people making a huge difference in their community.
