Low emission addition to NFRS FleetNFRS is driving towards an environmentally friendly future by adding a pair of low emission fire engines to its fleet of vehicles.https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/Low-emission-addition-to-NFRS-Fleet.aspxLow emission addition to NFRS Fleet<p>​NFRS is driving towards an environmentally friendly future by adding a pair of low emission fire engines to its fleet of vehicles.</p><p>The two new appliances, which will be based at London Road Fire Station, are both Euro 6 approved, meaning they comply to the latest European Union regulations aimed at reducing harmful pollutants from vehicle exhausts.</p><p>The vehicles will also be the first in the Service to trial the 22m hoses, compared to the current operational fleet currently using 19mm hoses. The new hoses will allow to deliver an increased (or higher) flow of water at a reduced pressure.</p><p>The move comes as the Service has also invested in two new electric, Kia Soul, vehicles which will be permanently based at Highfields.</p><p>Kevin Shuttlewood, Head of Engineering at Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "We have a responsibility as a public service to ensure that we protect and preserve the environment across Nottinghamshire.</p><p>"That is why we have added these low-emission and electric vehicles to the fleet."</p><p>A number of charging points at stations across the county have also been fitted.</p><p>These include Service Headquarters, Retford, Stockhill, SDC, London Road, Highfields, Mansfield and Newark. </p><p>The charging points have been funded with a grant from Nottingham City Council's Workplace Travel Service, which offers support and advice to businesses and organisations in the city.</p><p>Councillor Sally Longford, Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhood Services and Local Transport, said: "Reducing air pollution is a priority not just in Nottingham, but nationwide. Taking steps to use more environmentally-friendly vehicles can go a long way to reducing harmful emissions, and they're cheaper to run too.</p><p>"Many organisations rely on their fleets and vehicles to carry out their day to day business, but as Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue have shown, it is possible to reduce our impact on the environment without compromising on quality of service."</p><p>The new fire engines and electric vehicles are expected to be in use by NFRS by the end of April.</p>
Paw-fect gift for Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue ServiceFirefighters in Nottinghamshire will now be able to treat more animals caught in fires using pet specific breathing apparatus, thanks to Pets at Home and not for profit organisation Smokey Paws. https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/NOTTINGAMSHIRE-FIRE-AND-RESCUE-SERVICE-TO-CARRY-LIFESAVING-PET-SPECIFIC-EQUIPMENT-FOR-THE-FIRST-TIME-THANKS-TO-PETS-AT-HOME.aspxPaw-fect gift for Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service<p>Firefighters in Nottinghamshire will now be able to treat more animals caught in fires using pet specific breathing apparatus, thanks to Pets at Home and not for profit organisation Smokey Paws. </p><p>The donations have been raised through Pets at home’s VIP Lifelines, which raises funds for local and national charities as part of the company’s loyalty scheme, the VIP Club. </p><p>Fire stations in the US are provided with this equipment as standard, however in the UK, services are not provided with specific apparatus to resuscitate and treat pets which are unfortunately caught in fires. </p><p><span aria-hidden="true"></span>Damien West, Group Manager at NFRS said: “I would like to thank Pets at Home for their support and Smokey Paws for their continued partnership with Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service.</p><p>“The equipment previously sponsored by other donations, and on our appliances already, has saved the life of one dog in the county and, with their continued support, we look forward to saving many more lives in the future.”</p><p><img class="ms-rtePosition-4" alt="AS20180416-Smokey_Paws_Arnold-78.jpg" src="/nfrs-news/PublishingImages/Pages/NOTTINGAMSHIRE-FIRE-AND-RESCUE-SERVICE-TO-CARRY-LIFESAVING-PET-SPECIFIC-EQUIPMENT-FOR-THE-FIRST-TIME-THANKS-TO-PETS-AT-HOME/AS20180416-Smokey_Paws_Arnold-78.jpg" style="margin:0px;width:675px;" /></p><p>    <em>Smokey the Rabbit demonstrating how a Smokey Paws set is used!</em></p><p>Store manager at Pets at Home Arnold, Leanne Reynolds, said: “As a group that is passionate about the protection of pets, we are extremely excited to partner once again with Smokey Paws. We know that the apparatus we donated last year has been put to good use and is helping hardworking firefighters rescue pets and hopefully save lives. </p><p>Brian Lockyer from Smokey Paws said: “We are very pleased to be working with Pets at Home and we are thankful for their donation of an additional 75 sets of the Pet Oxygen Masks following last year’s partnership. We urge members of the public and other businesses to support our campaign and join us to get a set of the masks on each of the 3,000 fire engines in the UK.  Every pet deserves the best chance of survival and we know these masks save lives.”</p><p>Pets at Home and Smokey Paws conducted a survey of 2,500 UK pet owners and found that 12 per cent of Brits have been involved in a house fire and that a quarter of victims lost a pet in the incident. Despite this apparent risk to the safety of the nation’s pets, just 55 per cent of those surveyed have an emergency escape plan in case of fire and 21 per cent failed to factor their pet into their escape plan; that’s despite almost a quarter stating their pet is the family member they’d save first from a fire.</p><p>For more information about Smokey Paws and how to nominate your local fire service to receive the apparatus from the not for profit organisation, please visit: <a href="http://smokeypaws.co.uk/" style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong>smokeypaws.co.uk</strong></a></p>

We received lots of positive feedback about the visit from those who took part and thank the fire service for taking the time to visit us." </p><p>Warrant Officer Class 1 Sean Jones from HMS Sherwood said: "Firefighting in the naval service is a key element for all serving personnel; much of the equipment used by the Royal Navy is comparable with the Fire Service. </p><p>HMS Sherwood was delighted to host the Fire Service and get hands on with some awesome bit of kit. AB Craig Wagstaff was pivotal in setting up this visit and we very much appreciate his input".</p>
