NFRS comes together with partner agencies for #OperationHighwayInterventions for drink driving, seatbelts, speeding and distractions were just some of the things that the Service engaged with motorists about at a multi-agency operation to make Nottinghamshire’s roads safer last week. https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/NFRS-.aspxNFRS comes together with partner agencies for #OperationHighway<p>​Interventions for drink driving, seatbelts, speeding and distractions were just some of the things that the Service engaged with motorists about at a multi-agency operation to make Nottinghamshire's roads safer last week. </p><p>Operation Highway, which was previously called Operation Decelerate at last year's intervention, is this month focusing on HGVs and the Service worked alongside Nottinghamshire Police, the Environment Agency, Via East Midlands, and the Driver and Vehicle Licencing Agency to educate drivers passing through the north of the county. </p><p>Drivers were targeted over a two-day period at Blyth Services and the B&Q depot in Worksop and were initially pulled over by police, before other agencies gave them advice on road safety. </p><p>HGV drivers across the two days also took the Service's #HandOnYourHeart pledge, explaining how they would do their bit to make the roads safer. </p><p>Crew Manager Graham Picker, said: "Over the past year the service has seen a large number of fatalities and serious injuries on our roads, particularly pedestrians and cyclists.  As a Service, it is only right that we work closely with our partners to try and reduce these figures. </p><p>"Operation Highway was extremely successful over the two-day period in educating road users around the dangers of their offences and it was specifically aimed at working with every HGV driver that stopped at the B&Q depot.</p><p>"Drivers were extremely receptive to advice given but also gave a wealth of knowledge and road experience to us to pass on during our road safety intervention campaigns. Many thanks to all those involved and the public response was fantastic." </p><p> </p>

The work they do for people with learning difficulties is amazing.</p><p>“We decided on this project because we thought it would not only be beneficial for the members of Pulp Friction but also for the local community and NFRS staff as well.”</p><p>Edwinstowe Fire Station Manager, Chris Emmott helped out with the work and co-organised the project.</p><p>He said: “Today was a fantastic opportunity for us to collaborate with BT on this project and help continue to build the relationship between our organisations.</p><p>“I’d like to thank the team from BT for giving up their time to make a positive difference in the community.”</p>
Service supports National Fire Chiefs Council position on sprinklersAs part of the National Fire Chief's Council Sprinkler Week, which took place between Monday 12 and Friday 16 March, Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) re-affirmed its support of the NFCC position statement on sprinklers.https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/Service-supports-National-Fire-Chief's-Council-position-on-sprinklers.aspxService supports National Fire Chiefs Council position on sprinklers<p>As part of the National Fire Chief's Council Sprinkler Week, which took place between Monday 12 and Friday 16 March, Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS)  re-affirmed its support of the NFCC position statement on sprinklers.</p><p>Watch the video below to see Jonathan Holford, Station Manager for Fire Protection, outline the position of Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS).</p><div class="ms-rtestate-read ms-rte-embedcode ms-rte-embedil ms-rtestate-notify"><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/mijGD2c0pMk" frameborder="0"></iframe> </div><p>As a fully contributing member of the council, NFRS both supports and adopts the following position: </p><p><em>"Sprinklers are the most effective way to ensure that fires are suppressed or even extinguished before the fire service can arrive.</em></p><p><em>"They save lives and reduce injuries, protect firefighters who attend incidents and reduce the amount of damage to both property and the environment from fire.</em></p><p><em>"In the last 12 months, the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) and the National Fire Sprinkler Network (NFSN) have worked together to investigate the effectiveness and reliability of sprinkler systems.</em></p><p><em>"The evidence produced indicates that sprinkler systems operate on 94% of occasions demonstrating very high reliability. Furthermore, it is evident that when they do operate they extinguish or contain the fire on 99% of occasions and are thus very effective.</em></p><p><em>"The research also found that in both converted and purpose built flats that sprinklers are 100% effective in controlling fires.</em></p><p><em>"The NFCC recognise that sprinklers are an effective part of an overall fire safety solution and can be used efficiently to improve fire safety in a range of new and existing buildings.</em></p><p><em>"The NFCC support the concept of risk assessed retro fitting of sprinklers in existing buildings and would also welcome the prioritisation of a review of the Building Regulations (Approved Document B) to ensure fire safety requirements keep pace with new building developments.</em></p><p><em>"The NFCC supported by the NFSN are focused on developing understanding and acceptance to promote the wider use of sprinklers. Together we will continue the efforts in the coming months to:</em></p><ul><li><em>Educate the public and building owners to dispel the myths and understand the benefits of sprinklers.</em></li></ul><ul><li><em>Provide clear guidance on their consideration and implementation as part of a fire safety strategy.</em></li></ul><ul><li><em>Provide clear guidance within the service on their ongoing maintenance and operational considerations."</em></li></ul><p>Further to this position statement, the Service therefore reccomends that sprinklers are fitted throughout appropriate buildings and are not reserved for 'communal areas' only.  </p>
