Nominate your local hero

Residents in East Yorkshire are being encouraged to nominate their local hero for Humberside Fire and Rescue’s annual Community Awards.

You may nominate a family member, friend or colleague who you feel has acted in a heroic manner and is deserving of receiving such an award.

Katrina Goodhand, organiser of the Community Awards, said: “For the Local Hero award we are asking people to nominate someone they think has acted in a manner befitting the title of Local Hero.

“This does not necessarily mean that they have performed some kind of rescue, as heroic acts can be carried out by people who just make a really positive difference to others through their actions.”

Nominations can be submitted by calling or texting 07581 495960, emailing localhero@humbersidefire.gov.uk or by sending a letter to: Local Hero, FREEPOST NEA3610, Humberside Fire & Rescue Service, HULL, HU4 7BR.

Nominations close on 1 June.
