It recognises both the commitment of firefighters and their families for the sacrifice they make in making our communities a safer place.

Henry has served at Kirk Michael Station since June 1, 1992, and has attended a wide variety of incidents.

A fire service spokesman said: ‘He epitomises all that is good within the service and we wish him well in the rest of his career, and thank him for his continued commitment to the service.’

It was a sad farewell to Michael Collins who retired from the service on the same night.
