Awards for quake help

About 90 southern firefighters and support staff who responded to the fatal Christchurch earthquake in February 2011 will be honoured at a ceremony in Dunedin on Monday.

The New Zealand Fire Service is honouring more than 1000 metropolitan staff, as well as volunteers and other personnel, with Christchurch recognition awards at ceremonies throughout the coun-try, in the lead-up to the second anniversary of the quake.

Those involved in the response will rec-eive certificates of appreciation, and those deployed to Christchurch will be given citations and ribbon bars.
