Firefighters honoured at awards
Firefighters Jurgen Jameson, Steve Manley and Wayne Broom recognised for their contribution to the fire service.
East Devon firefighters have been recognised for their contribution to the fire service at a special awards ceremony.
Seaton firefighter Jurgen Jameson, who joined the fire service as a retained firefighter in the resort in 1992, was honoured and received a long service award.
He also serves at Camels Head fire station in Plymouth.
Firefighters Steve Manley and Wayne Broom received commendations from the chief fire officer, Lee Howell, for the part they played in rescuing a female parachutist trapped in a tree at Dunkeswell Airfield last November.
A specialist rescue team from the Urban Search and Rescue Station in Exeter was mobilised and a second search and rescue team was requested from Bridgwater.
