Parliamentary Recognition for Banff Firefighter

Banff Firefighter Kevin Smith has been recognised in Parliament for his bravery in helping to rescue a woman from a sinking car in Macduff Harbour.

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson tabled a Motion in parliament commending Mr Smith’s actions and congratulating him on his award from the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals after being contacted by one of Mr Smith’s colleagues highlighting that he was to receive the award.

Mr Stevenson also took the opportunity of tabling the Motion to underline the valuable role of retained firefighters in the local community.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“Kevin Smith performed a very brave act and helped to rescue a woman whose car had plunged into Macduff Harbour. In the media coverage of his award, Kevin has come across as a very modest individual who says he was only doing his job and lays great emphasis on the two fishermen who also took part in the rescue. They also deserve commendation for their actions, which resulted in a life being saved.

“I was very pleased to be able to put a Motion down in Parliament recognising the award received by Kevin for his part in the rescue. It was also an important opportunity to highlight the vital role which retained firefighters play in the safety of their local community.

“The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service in this area relies on retained firefighters and are always on the lookout for new recruits. I hope this may help prompt some interest from people to consider serving their local community as a retained firefighter."
