Grenfell grant buys life-saving smoke hoods for NFRSFirefighters train with new smoke hoodshttps://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/Smoke-hoods.aspxGrenfell grant buys life-saving smoke hoods for NFRS<p>Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service firefighters can now use smoke hoods, similar to gas masks, to help them rescue people trapped in fires, particularly in high-rise buildings.</p><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>The hoods, which allow trapped people to breathe for 15 minutes, can be worn over their heads while firefighters lead them to safety through a smoke-filled environment if all other routes are unavailable.  They would be particularly useful in a high-rise building due to the potentially complex nature of these rescues.</p><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>The Government has given NFRS nearly £100,750 to buy smoke hoods and other equipment designed specifically for tackling fires in high-rise buildings, following the Grenfell Tower Inquiry Phase 1 report.  Other equipment to be brought into use over the next few months includes smoke curtains to stop the spread of smoke to an escape route.</p><p> Smoke hoods were successfully used in Bournemouth recently when two of the 11 people rescued from a three-storey block of flats were led to safety while wearing the hoods.  More details about this are available on <a href="https://www.dwfire.org.uk/news/new-fire-escape-hoods-now-in-use/">Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service’s website</a>. </p><p>Group Manager Chris Emmott said: "The smoke hoods have already proved their worth in Bournemouth and could save many lives in Nottinghamshire in future.  The purchase of equipment for tackling fires in high-rise buildings is just one of the many ways we are meeting the recommendations of the Grenfell Tower Inquiry Phase 1 report."</p>
