A look back at 20202020 was a different and challenging year for everyone, but there were also some great achievements, big incidents and some changes within Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service.https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/A-look-back-at-2020.aspxA look back at 2020<font face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>2020 was a different and challenging year for everyone, but there were also some great achievements, big incidents and some changes within Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS). Welcome to our look back of 2020.</p><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>In 2020, crews were mobilised to 9,149 incidents. They attended 2,980 fires and completed 107 extraction RTCs. There had been 30 people rescued from fires, seven people rescued from water and 67 animal rescues. </p><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>We worked collaboratively as we welcomed Nottinghamshire Police into West Bridgford Fire Station to become a joint station and we celebrated the first tri-service station of Nottinghamshire with the move into the East Midlands Ambulance Station in Hucknall. </p><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>We opened a new joint memorial garden with Nottinghamshire Police as part of the Joint Police and Fire Headquarters at Sherwood Lodge. This was created to remember those that lost their lives in service. </p><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>Towards the end of 2020 we recruited for both on call and wholetime firefighters. 12 new on call firefighters will start their course later this month, and we will be recruiting again for another 12 to start this summer. The wholetime course is set to start in April this year.</p><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>The work did not stop to raise much needed funds for The Fire Fighters Charity in 2020. Our Occupational Health and Fitness Advisor hosted internal and external Zumba sessions virtually, several Fire Stations held charity car wash sessions, and Stapleford Fire Station ended the year with a COVID-secure drive thru Santa’s grotto. In the last financial year (April 2019 – April 2020) NFRS have raised a grand total of £58,572.58 for the charity and will continue to do so in 2021.</p><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>Amongst all the above, like everybody else, we had the pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic to deal with. Everyone at NFRS went above and beyond during these times. All our staff, operational and non-operational had to adapt into new ways of working, with the majority of support staff moving to work from home.</p><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>We have been working collaboratively with East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) and providing extra help and resources where needed whilst they react to the pandemic. During 2020, NFRS staff covered 201 shifts with EMAS.</p><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>Crews around Nottinghamshire have continued to help their local community during the time of need, and have been helping with the distribution of food and medication parcels alongside incidents. In total, NFRS staff made 11,817 deliveries in 2020 – 2,941 of them being medication deliveries to help local pharmacies. </p><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>A huge thank you to all operational staff who worked throughout Christmas and New Year. The hard work, commitment and determination from across the whole service has not gone unnoticed and we all hope that 2021 will be a better year for everyone. </p><font face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font>
