Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and rescue service recently had the pleasure of celebrating the brave actions of Duncan Chennell following a property fire at his home back in 2020.

Chief Fire Officer Ben Ansell presented Duncan with the Chief Fire Officer’s Commendation after getting his younger brother to safety and raising the alarm when a fire started in his home by making the 999 call.

Duncan remembers his fire safety talk at Weymouth Community Fire Station delivered by an education officer when he was in year five. This shows that the value of fire safety education should never be underestimated and how important it is for all children.

Duncan was also presented with a Certificate of Bravery from the Society for the Protection of Life from Fire in recognition of his actions.
