The London Fire Brigade showed extraordinary courage during the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy on 14 June 2017. 

They deserve to be recognised as a group for their heroism and sacrifices. 

The George Cross (GC) is the second highest award of the United Kingdom honours system. It is awarded for acts of the greatest heroism or the most conspicuous courage in circumstances of extreme danger. This decoration was primarily intended for civilian men and women, although awards were also made to members of the Armed Forces in circumstances where a military award was not applicable. 

To date, there have been 407 George Cross awards but only 2 of these have been collective honours. 

We would like to see the London Fire Brigade honoured with this singular honour as an expression of permanent gratitude. 

Note: the Victoria Cross may only be awarded to members of the British armed forces. This award is the highest award available for non-conflict bravery.
