Crew Commander Kerridge (49) took ill and died on 13 April 2020 while attending an emergency incident.

His sudden death had a profound impact on colleagues and the community.

Stewart Murray, Watch Commander at Incsh Fire Station, said: “Stevie was a big part of the station - not just for his skills and professionalism but also for his personality.

“He was a gentle soul and the installation of the plaque is an indication of just how well regarded he was by everyone.”

Stevie’s wife, Lynn and two sons, James and Sam, are to be invited to the Station for a private view of the plaque.

The crew at Insch Fire Station would like to thank former Aberdeenshire Local Senior Officer Bruce Farquharson and SFRS property services for their help and assistance with the installation of the plaque.
