Sally earns her stripes for 40 years service answering 999 calls
Wednesday 15th January 2020
KEEPING her cool in the heat of the moment has been a winning combination that has seen Sally Blackwell clock up a record 40 years’ service in the control room for Kent Fire and Rescue service.
As the first point of contact for the public, Sally says she is never phased by the job’s demands for quick decisions and in deploying officers, fire engines and other specialist resources to emergencies. She is now looking forward to celebrating her 50 years’ service in 2030.
To mark her special anniversary, Area Manager Chris Else presented Sally with a certificate at a special gathering of control colleagues, and her friends and family.
