LEADING FIREMAN RETIRES

Donald McKay retired from Grampian Fire and Rescue Service on 21st May after 28 years with the Brigade. He is seen here being handed a presentation axe on his last official meeting at the Station on 16th May, by Peter Murray, Area Commander.

Donald joined the Service on 1st March 1977 and on 1st January 1983, was promoted to Sub-Officer in charge of the Foggie Fire Station.

At his presentation, Donald reminisced on many of the call outs he had attended.  Some of the stories were very amusing while others as you would expect, were sad.  He stated that he was very sorry to be leaving the Service but at his age, the 400 metre sprint from his shop to the Fire Station was getting a little bit too much.
