Receiving recognition were Sweeper Driver David Gray and Street Cleansing Operative Mark Davis, who administered potentially lifesaving first aid to a youngster injured in a traffic accident in Shanklin on 9th August.
Traffic Management Operatives Ben Meakin and Kev King have also been recognised for assisting a Newport woman who hurt her leg in a fall at Compton Bay in July, as reported by Island Echo.
- In addition, District Steward Derek Bean and Area superintendent Rob Read came to the assistance of a distressed young boy who had climbed into a redundant canon at Calbourne Mill and got stuck.
Paul Herbert, Island Roads service director, said:
“I am pleased that in each of these incidents, our staff were on hand to offer vital assistance to people in their time of need. I know their efforts were very much appreciated by those they helped out and I am delighted to be able to formally recognise their actions on behalf of the company.”
The six have been given certificates and gift vouchers of £20 by the company under its special recognition award scheme that acknowledges the special efforts of staff.
