Event description

Description

The Firefighters' Story will be shown in full at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard’s Auditorium on Friday the 27th of September 2019, marking the end of the Union's first Centenary


The evening will have guest speaker Matt Wrack, General Secretary of the Fire Brigades Union, and we will also be unveiling a Red Plaque to remember the 21 Firefighters who lost their lives protecting property and the people of Portsmouth during World War 2


Matt Wrack, FBU General Secretary, said: “As we reach the end of our first hundred years as a trade union and start our second, we wanted to mark it in a memorable way. This film will be something for both current and future generations to learn from, not just about the value of firefighters to communities over the last century, but the significant contribution FBU members have made to public safety, and of course the safety of its members.”

We look forward to seeing you there,

Yours in Unity

Mark Chapman
