Hitchin Fire Station ‘credit’ to town
STAFF at Hitchin Fire Station know the sure fire way to success, after receiving the best score for its station for the second year in a row.
The station scored a four - the highest rating in the audit system - when Hertfordshire fire officers visited the station.
Staff were commended, with the inspecting officer stating he was “particularly pleased with the attitude of the crews who worked extremely hard throughout the inspection process”.
He added that the crew were a “credit to the Hitchin community”.
David Rees, station commander when inspectors visited in February, said: “All areas are excelling in their performance and as a station commander I cannot ask for more, although I will.
“This is an excellent audit score and the station has worked very hard to not only achieve this result but through out the year.
“It reflects not only on the personnel on duty on the morning of the inspection but to all areas of the station, wholetime and retained firefighters and the volunteer unit.
