The Targeted Response Vehicle crew from Cannock were named Fire Service Champion in the annual MORE Awards. The crew were nominated by a member of the public for their proactive work in South Staffordshire.
Watch Manager Rob Horton said: "We are really pleased that the hard work of the crew has been recognised not just for our usual role but for work over and above, such as conducting a door to door survey for many organisations as well as the Fire Service"
The 2013 MORE Awards at the Stafford County Showground saw nine awards presented to individual staff, teams or local partners in honour of the work they have done with the Fire Service over the past year.
Chief Fire Officer/ Chief Executive Peter Dartford said: "These awards are an important opportunity for us to recognise and celebrate the remarkable efforts and achievements of our colleagues, partners and authority members.
"However, these are just a few examples of the many extraordinary initiatives that are being undertaken across our organisation on a daily basis - within an increasingly challenging environment - and which consistently deliver positive improvements to the lives and wellbeing of local people."
The crew were nominated for their commitment, engagement with the public and ability to get partner organisations to work together. They were praised for their work in the Huntington local community including a survey to find out the views of local people and support for the StreetStadiaTM initiative, which has led to a reduction in small fires.
