A tribute to Firefighter Barry Martin

Firefighters from West Denton Community Fire Station paying their respects to FF Barry Martin

Earlier today [Monday 13th February] we joined other blue light colleagues in showing our respect to fallen comrade Firefighter Barry Martin from Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, who tragically lost his life in the line of duty.
The minute’s silence was honoured by members of Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Authority; by our staff who gathered in the memorial garden at Service Headquarters in Washington; and across our seventeen Community Fire Stations throughout Tyne and Wear including West Denton Community Fire Station.
Our thoughts go out to Firefighter Barry Martin’s family and friends during this difficult time.
