Firefighter’s watch ends after 18 years’ service in Egremont

After a career of 18 years, with spells at Ulverston and Walney stations, Firefighter Brannon retired.


Watched on by his family and firefighters past, as he first received a framed certificate of service, then a toy fire engine, before the ceremonial hand axe was presented.

Warren was thanked for his service and for his work, which included setting up Egremont Fire Station’s twitter account.
