Every day, we are fortunate enough to have a whole team of emergency services available to us whenever we need them. It’s often something we take for granted and we don’t usually even give them a second thought when going about our everyday lives, until we need them, that is. What we can agree with on that we simply couldn’t do without them.
Peli UK, the company that provides intrinsically safe torches to the emergency services, have launched a quest to find Peli UK’s Emergency Service heroes. They are asking the general public to nominate a local emergency service that they think has gone above and beyond the call of duty. If you have a story and want to nominate a local emergency service for their work and dedication, head over to the Peli UK site and get your nomination here before 31st May.
After the closing date, a short list will be drawn up of the final nominees and, after reading their stories, the public will be asked to decide on the worthy winner who will win the incredible prize of £2000 worth of Peli UK products, as a thank you and to help them to continue their amazing service to us all.
My vote has gone to the Medway Coastguards Rescue Team. Living so close to the river, we have often caught sight of the team’s helicopter flying overhead or been aware of their frequent rescue efforts. They face dangers in all weather and, with the change of the season coming upon us and people taking a dip in the warmer weather, there is no doubt that they’ll be seeing a rise in calls over the summer. I would like to nominate them to say a big thank you for all they do, so they’ve got my vote.
The question is, who will get yours? Head on over to the Peli UK competition page and nominate your local emergency service now.
