An Over Wyre firefighter has retired after four deacdes of sterling service.

Steve Dawson, 60, served at Great Harwood for 15 years before moving to Preesall fire station.
But he is keeping his role as watch manager firmly in the family – with son Mick following in his dad’s footsteps.

Steve said: “I was very proud when Mick went into the fire service, as I think every father wishes, or hopes, that their son will follow in their footsteps and I can’t think of anyone better to take over.”
