FIREAWAY CLUB - UPDATE MAY 2020
Due to the virus lockdown we've obviously had to cancel all scheduled Fireaway social meetings and walks until further notice.
Hopefully there will be an easing of the lockdown restrictions to allow the June or August social to go ahead. We'll update everyone by email once we have a confirmed date for a social/walk to go ahead.
Sad news with the announcement of the death of serving firefighter Kane Mcginley. Below is a copy of the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service internal memo detailing the death.
SFRS Internal Memo:
"It is with profound sadness that I announce the death of our friend and colleague Firefighter Kane McGinley on the evening of Friday 24 April 2020. Kane was a retained firefighter at Penicuik Community Fire Station.
Our thoughts are with Kane's family, friends and colleagues at this sad time.
Please note that flags at all SFRS premises should be lowered to half-mast until sunset as a mark of respect. In line with current SFRS protocols."
