Firefighters attend wedding reception while on call

Posted on by Naomi

Firefighters, desperate to attend a fellow colleague’s wedding reception, kept their fire engine outside the venue so they could still be on call.

The 13 firefighters, who recently celebrated the 25th birthday of the new fire station in Kirton, made sure they were still on duty, as well as in attendance to their team mate Martin Taylor’s wedding celebrations.

Eddie Affection, a watch manager at Kirton Fire Station told the Spalding Guardian: “One of my lads, Martin Taylor, got married a fortnight ago and he had his wedding reception at The Poachers at Swineshead and we took the fire engine with us so we could maintain cover and all of us go to the wedding.”
