Take smoking outside as part of national campaignA cigarette before bed. Smoking after having a few drinks. Lighting up in your living room. https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/Take-smoking-outside-as-part-of-national-campaign.aspxTake smoking outside as part of national campaign<p>​Maybe you or a family member does one or all of these things regularly, but with smoking responsible for one third of all accidental fire fatalities, it might be time to think again. </p><p>Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service is urging you to rethink your smoking routine as part of the latest Fire Kills campaign. What are your smoking habits? </p><p>Smoking has accounted for 565 of the 1,539 fire fatalities in England since 2010, and whether you or a loved one smokes, or you care for someone who does, we have put together some of our key advice below. </p><p><strong>A cigarette before bed: </strong><br></p><ul><li>Tiredness and smoking do not mix – unextinguished cigarettes can ignite, especially if you fall asleep. </li><li>If you have an airflow mattress it is important not to smoke in bed. This is because if punctured, the air can accelerate fire. </li></ul><p><strong>Smoking after a few drinks: </strong><br></p><ul><li>Consuming alcohol or prescription drugs can cause tiredness. Mix this with smoking and the consequences can be fatal. </li><li>Avoid dropping cigarettes while tired by never smoking and drinking.  </li></ul><p><strong>Lighting up in your living room: </strong></p><ul><li>Always use a proper ashtray and never a wastepaper basket. </li><li>Never let ashtrays overflow.</li><li>Don’t leave a lit cigarette lying around.</li><li>Smoking outside can limit the risk but you should always make sure you put it out, right out, before going back inside. <br></li></ul><p>Paul Gair, Station Manager in the Service’s Prevention Team, said: “As a Service, we cannot tell people to stop smoking, but can instead encourage smokers to do it safely.</p><p>“It is very important that if you smoke, or you care for someone who smokes, that cigarettes are always extinguished and disposed of safely, as failing to do so can cause the ignition of items in your home. </p><p>“Sadly, fatalities due to smoking do occur, but by following our advice, you can minimise the risk of being affected by fire by following our safe smoking tips. </p><p>“Remember, always put it out, right out.”</p><p><br></p>
NFRS joins forces with police to invest in top-flight droneNottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service and Nottinghamshire Police have invested in drone technology to tackle crime and gather aerial information at significant fire incidents.https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/NFRS-joins-forces-with-police-to-invest-in-top-flight-drone.aspxNFRS joins forces with police to invest in top-flight drone<p>Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service and Nottinghamshire Police have invested in drone technology to tackle crime and gather aerial information at significant fire incidents, which will help keep firefighters, the public and other responders from unnecessary danger.</p><p>The latest collaboration from both organisations will see the drone used by the Service to support operations at incidents such as urban search and rescue, disaster response, road collisions, hazardous materials and large scale fires.</p><p>It will be used by the Police to help find high-risk missing people, to support rural crime prevention and detection operations, responding to major incidents such as flooding, monitor public order events such as protests, pre-planned operations, counter-terrorism operations and gather evidence to secure court convictions. </p><p>The new equipment was demonstrated on Friday 29 March 2019 in front of local media at NFRS Headquarters in Arnold, Nottingham.</p><div class="ms-rtestate-read ms-rte-embedcode ms-rte-embedil ms-rtestate-notify" unselectable="on"><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/b2BpHyyT2Pk" frameborder="0"></iframe> </div><p>Bryn Coleman (pictured right), Area Manager at Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service, who is the Service’s Collaboration Lead, said: “We are delighted that we will be able to share this new resource with our police colleagues.</p><p>“A number of other fire and rescue services have utilised a drone at incidents and it is clear they can be very beneficial in carrying out water rescues and fighting fires. </p><p>“The drone gives us a perspective at an incident which can really make our job easier, helping us and our partners to provide an excellent service to the people of Nottinghamshire.”</p><p>Nottinghamshire Police’s Assistant Chief Constable Kate Meynell (pictured centre) said: "This is great news for both organisations and will give the force another tool to be used to help tackle crime.</p><p>"We've had great support from the National Police Air Service (NPAS) units and we will continue to do so, however, they aren't always available at short notice, so having our own drone will be a real advantage.</p><p>"The new drone will give officers a chance to scan large areas in a very short time and could ultimately save lives."</p><p><img src="/nfrs-news/PublishingImages/2018/AS20190329-Drone-WEBSIZE3.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:800px;" /><br></p><p>Paddy Tipping, Nottinghamshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, (pictured second from right) said that the drone was a further tool in the box to keep people safe.  He added: "The drone is a cost-effective eye-in-the-sky.  It isn’t replacing the helicopter, but it will enhance our aerial capability.</p><p>“There is no doubt that it will help to catch criminals, locate missing people, provide vital updates to both services on various incidents and I’m sure that it will be a valuable means of tackling crime in more rural areas.  This is an investment thanks to this year’s budget and it illustrates how technology can bring significant tactical benefits to local services.”</p><p>The drone has been fitted with the latest high definition cameras and thermal imaging technology and this equipment will allow officers to cover more ground on their patrols.</p><p>It can be legally flown to a maximum height of 400ft (120m). This limit is set by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) so drones do not interfere with aircraft which operate just above at 500ft.</p><p>Each drone is powered by rechargeable batteries and fully charged these can allow flight from between 20-45 minutes.</p><p>The force has purchased two drones, one to be used for training purposes and they have been funded by both organisations. </p><p>A group of 10 officers from the force’s five response teams will be trained to fly the drone, to ensure that it can be flown at any point to help with incidents.</p><p>The new equipment will be available to be used at the end of June 2019. <br></p>
