Meet the Volunteers – Part 3


To celebrate Volunteers’ Week, we are sharing some posts about a few of our amazing Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service Volunteers.

Our HWFRS Volunteers are essential to making links within the community and delivering vital Fire Safety Information.

Last but certainly not least is Edward.

We thought we would tell you more about Edward and what has led him to volunteer for HWFRS.

At 8 years service Edward is one of our longest-standing Volunteers for HWFRS.

Name: Edward Cheshire.

Length of service: 8 years service.

Favourite volunteering activity: Giving Fire Safety Talks and working with the firefighters on training exercises.

Most memorable volunteering moment: Being involved in a chemical spill exercise and having to get naked to be washed down at Hereford General Hospital.
