Businesses to be recognised for supporting firefighters

An award to recognise Newtown businesses who employ and support retained firefighters is to be mounted by Newtown Town Council.

The council is to consider a civic award scheme that would recognise businesses that have supported  employees who are retained firefighters or have encouraged them to sign up.

“Research will be undertaken to find an appropriate format for a scheme to honour local businesses,” said a town council statement.

Retained firefighters make up the majority of firefighters working at Newtown and other local fire stations in the area.

With most relying on full time work elsewhere, the town council wants to encourage businesses to support and encourage individuals to take up the role.
