Humberside Fire and Rescue Service is asking members of the public to nominate their local hero.

The Local Hero Award celebrates bravery and courage, and the winner will be honoured at the Service’s Recognition Awards on Friday November 22.

Members of the public are being asked to think of someone they know, which could be a family member, friend or colleague who they feel has acted in a heroic manner and deserves the Local Hero Award, this year sponsored by Capsticks.

Chris Blacksell, Chief Fire Officer at Humberside Fire and Rescue Service said: “This annual event recognises the great achievements of individuals and teams who have made a positive impact on the organisation or, have made a difference to improving the safety of people in our communities.”
