Rosina Retires after 43 years with the Service

16/03/11

One of Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service’s longest serving employees, Rosina Kidd, is leaving the Service after 43 years. 

“She’s been the backbone of Burton Fire Station and is well respected by all the team, who will be very sad to see her go. We wish her all the best for the future and hope she enjoys her well earned retirement.”  

Area Commander for East Staffordshire, Mick Archer.

Rosi is the Administration Manager for East Staffordshire Area Command, based at Burton Fire Station. She joined the fire service at the tender age of 16 in October 1967, as a short hand typist and junior clerk at Burton Fire Station. In 1990 she moved to Lichfield where she remained until 2001 before returning to Burton as the Administration Manager.

Area Commander for East Staffordshire, Mick Archer said: “Rosi has been one of our longest serving members of staff and she’s an absolute credit to the Service. She was recognised in 2009 when she won our Fire Service Green Award, for her single handed work in setting up recycling systems throughout all of the fire stations in East Staffs.

“She’s been the backbone of Burton Fire Station and is well respected by all the team, who will be very sad to see her go. We wish her all the best for the future and hope she enjoys her well earned retirement.”

Rosina’s last working day is this Thursday 17th March.
