As well as presenting awards for outstanding service to Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue staff, the awards ceremony also recognises members of the public who have gone above and beyond to assist the fire service in their work.

Cath has been nominated due to delivering training sessions for fire crews in horse handling, which is an essential skill when dealing with an equine emergency.

Cath said: “I am really proud to be nominated for this award. The work that the fire service do is essential in equine rescues and I’m honoured to be part of delivering the specialist training in animal handling which will help the teams with any equine rescues in the future.”
