The Fire & Rescue Service’s Western Area Command have celebrated the success of the award winning Road Safety programme.

The local emergency service personnel gathered at Crescent Link Fire Station with some of the volunteers who played a vital role in its production.

Alongside NIFRS Assistant Chief Fire Officer Alan Walmsley and Western Area Station Commander Kieran Doherty, representatives from a number of Funeral Directors in the greater North West area and actor Bill Waters were present to acknowledge the achievements.

NIFRS Station Commander Kieran Doherty was awarded the inaugural NI Road Safety Awards Emergency Services Person of the Year at an event held at Cultra Manor last year.

Kieran has played an instrumental role in the road safety programme aimed at drivers in the North West area.

Speaking at the event, Station Commander Doherty said: “This was a great opportunity to acknowledge the volunteers who assisted to helping to promote the road safety message across the North West.

“I am delighted to welcome representatives from local Funeral Directors in the area, as well as actor Bill Waters and to recognise their vital contribution.

“Road safety requires the efforts of many partner agencies, but it is often those organisations and individuals whose selfless acts who play just as an important part. This event is to say thank you for their contribution to road safety in the North West.”
