Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service

"Life Saved"

5 metres high, fabricated in mild steel, designed and made by Paul Margetts.

The sculpture describes the rescue of a young child in a blanket by a fire fighter. The fire fighter's arm is raised in celebration and is also outstretched over Rugby to suggest the protection given to the town by the Fire Service.

The project was funded jointly by the Millennium Commission, Rugby Borough Council, and Warwickshire County Council, while a team, including the Fire Service came together to help achieve the design. Two designs of sculpture were put before the community for selection.
