OVER the last couple of months, the Beast from the East and Storm Emma gave Greater Manchester its worst winter weather in decades – but that did not stop GMFRS volunteers from supporting events across the city-region.
Barbara Walton, Joe Johnson, Callum Mabon and the latest recruit to the volunteer team, Christian Faryniarz assisted the Community Safety Team in Stockport throughout March. Volunteers provided reassurance to the local community by visiting high rise buildings with information and carrying out Safe and Well checks.
Other events that the volunteers were involved with include; the Fire Fighters Charity car washes – which also ran into April, chaplaincy visits, poster distributions, crew training casualties and much more.
Despite the adverse weather conditions, the volunteers in total donated over 2,000 hours of volunteering throughout the month of March – what a fantastic achievement!
