Firefighter responding alongside LAS ambulance crews thanked for restoring memorial bench

Not only has Station Sub-Officer Nik Zakis been driving ambulances on blue lights and helping his crewmates on scene, but he also painstakingly restored a memorial bench at an ambulance station which is dedicated to a former member of LAS staff.

Nik is one of 300 firefighters to work alongside ambulance crews responding to COVID-19, in a ground-breaking partnership between London Ambulance Service and London Fire Brigade.

As well undertaking crewmate duties with teams based at Brent Ambulance Station, Nik also took it upon himself to restore the much-loved bench.

He replaced the wooden slats, strengthened the bench with steel rods and, finally, added a fresh layer of varnish.
