The Mayor said: "In the last few years the crew have faced difficult times and met them with professionalism, heroism and dignity.

"Indeed it was their courage, endeavour and bravery at Llangammarch Wells that earned them the Chief Fire Officers Exceptional Achievement Award; and after four years of being in the top three the Llanwrtyd Wells Fire Station was named Station of the Year at the awards ceremony in November 2018.”

Fire crews from Llanwrtyd Wells were sent to the tragic incident near Llangammarch Wells, which killed David Cuthbertson and children Just Raine, 11, Reef Raine, 10, Misty Raine, 9, Patch Raine, six and Gypsy Raine, four, on 30 October 2017.
