Award the London Fire Brigade the George Cross
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.

Ensure firefighters of Grenfell Towers get commended with a medal from The Queen
During the early hours of 14th June 2017, a fire broke out at the 24-storey Grenfell Tower, a block of public housing flats in North Kensington, London, England. Within minutes of the first 999 call, emergency services were at the scene. Firefighters did not hesitate and ran into a burning tower to save the life's of those they could, at the risk of their own. They worked tirelessley in one of the biggest fires London has seen in 50 years. Their bravery, courage, compassion and strength - both physically and mentally - needs to be commended. These firefighters cant just go home, close the door, and 'leave work at work' like the majority of us manage to do. They will be haunted by horrific scenes inside the building that we will never begin to imagine, feel guilt and despair for those they couldn't save. They will never forget what they witnessed first hand, in the centre of what all of us have only stood by and watched in horror. It is for this reason, and the fact they do this without hesitation, that we shouldn't hesitate in signing this petition to push forward for them to be awarded the Queens Fire Service Medal for Distinguished Service.

Call for all Firefighters attending Grenfell Tower to be knighted to honour their bravery
I am shocked and moved by the amazing bravery the fire service attending the Grenfell tower Fire displayed. The incredible men and women who ran into the tower filled with flames to save people. The fire service are underpaid, over worked and enduring massive budget cuts making their day to day jobs even harder. But dealing with the situations that unfolded in the early hours of Wednesday morning at Grenfell Tower and doing so with bravery that most of us couldn't even dream of demonstrating. These service people should be honoured and given titles. We often give Knighthoods to celebrities. Why not give them to people we can all genuinely admire. Heroes. For with out them many more people would have died.

Demand the UK Government reinvestigates the collapse of this building
UK Firefighters now face potentially catastrophic consequences due to sudden and rapid building collapse According to American authorities, we still have a potentially fatal problem with the construction of steel-structured high rises, which could disintegrate without warning after only 6 hours of office fires... This should be of great concern to EVERY serving fireman and woman around the World. Many are totally unaware of this risk. Buildings will have to be retro-fitted with new fire-proofing, and constructed with new design methods. Firefighters should refuse to fight skyscraper fires until that has happened... The US National Institute of Standards and Technology [NIST] claim that the building illustrated , collapsed to into a small pile of rubble, symmetrically, into its own footprint, within 7 seconds DUE TO NORMAL OFFICE FIRES. Good luck to all our firefighters...
