BRIAN ROLLITT - Volunteer
Brian dedicates so much of his personal time to his local community via Cumbria Fire & Rescue Service it is truly commendable. His enthusiastic personality encourages not only himself but others to go that extra mile all of the time.
He has played an active part of the decision making that has brought about the 'New Beginnings' that Kendal locality have found in their small but very active and successful team of volunteers! In between working full time for Cumbria County Council and assisting his local area in many different ways, he is one of Cumbria Fire & Rescue Service's most committed volunteers who has taken part in many different activities not only in Kendal but in many parts of the Lake District where he lives himself. It is a real two-way mutually beneficial partnership between Brian and Cumbria Fire & Rescue Service.
He is a committed volunteer but he looks for opportunities to expand the initiatives he has been involved in and is always keen to be involved in other opportunities that arise such as:
Brian's outgoing personality enables him to get on with people easily and so found himself in great demand not long after joining Kendal volunteers team and is kept very busy with suggestions from the Watch Manager for various projects he can assist with and also he has accompanied local retained community firefighters and supports the Advocates in delivering their services to the community.
Brian's local knowledge of his area has been most useful when Home Fire Safety Visits have been required in his village which he is always willing to assist with and can be regularly seen out and about chatting to his neighbours and checking they have got all the information they need in connection with community safety and Cumbria Fire & Rescue Service.
