Fire Crew Congratulated
Three members of Sark’s Fire and Rescue Service were honoured this month for their part in rescuing a man trapped on the cliffs at Grande Grève at night. Crew Commander Rowan Gill free climbed an area of slippery rocks to get ropes to the casualty. The rescue took place on a moonless night during a westerly gale with sea spray and a rising tide making the situation even more dangerous. For his part in the rescue Rowan was awarded a Certification of Commendation. Fire Fighters Nick Dewe and Robert Knight were also an essential part of the team involved and both received Certificates of Congratulations for their roles in the rescue. The certificates were all awarded by Sark’s Chief Fire Officer, Kevin Adams.
