Humberside Fire and Rescue Service (HFRS) staff and partners of the Service have been recognised as part of an annual awards ceremony.
The 11th annual Recognition Awards are set to take place at Hessle’s Country Park Inn on Friday 22 November and the evening celebrates members of HFRS staff and partners who have made a positive impact on their peers, the organisation or the community.
There are eight categories in total, each of which is shown below. Almost 100 nominations were received from members of HFRS staff and these were whittled down to just three in each category by a panel of judges.
