A message from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service

Following the announcement of the death of Her Majesty The Queen, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service Interim Chief Officer, Ross Haggart, said: “This is a day of profound sadness and our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this time.    

“The Queen’s Fire Service Medal is a source of pride to many of our staff and it was an honour when Her Majesty The Queen met personally with our firefighters who helped to protect Ballater in Aberdeenshire during unprecedented flooding in 2015.   

“We will continue to work alongside our partners, including Scottish Government, the Royal Household, Police Scotland, local authorities and transport authorities, to support community safety during ceremonial and memorial events.”
