Bikers and firefighters come together for 'egg-celent' causeThe run-up to Easter gets off to a roaring start this weekend as bikers take part in the https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/Bikers-and-firefighters-come-together-for-'egg-celent'-cause.aspxBikers and firefighters come together for 'egg-celent' cause<p>​The run-up to Easter got off to a roaring start earlier this month as bikers took part in the 37<sup>th</sup> Nottinghamshire Easter Egg Run on Sunday 9 April, to help disadvantaged children.</p><p>After riding up the A60 from Nottingham's Forest Recreation Ground to Mansfield Fire Station, bikers donated Easter eggs, which were then distributed by firefighters to Surestart centres, children's homes and children with special needs and those living with foster parents. </p><p>This was the eleventh consecutive year that NFRS has hosted the event - which also saw bikers have the chance to learn about road safety and enjoy trade stands, as well as refreshments provided by Pulp Friction, upon arrival at Mansfield Fire Station on Rosemary Street. </p><p>Previous years have seen over 1,000 bikers take part, and between them, they have managed to bring a smile to the faces of children across Nottinghamshire who benefit from their generosity and kindness. </p><p>Watch Manager Tim Marston, who co-ordinated the day, said: "We were pleased and proud to once again host what has become an important date in the annual motorcycling calendar, and what often signals the first 'ride-out' of the season for many. </p><p>"As well as providing a much-needed boost to some of our county's disadvantaged children, the Egg Run aims to promote safer motorbike riding in Nottinghamshire, and our firefighters were on hand to offer practical advice to help to reduce the number of motorcycle casualties in the county. </p><p>"It was great to see as many people as possible coming along to support an event for such a worthy cause."</p>
Staff head out into Ashfield community following serious fireFirefighters and members of Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service’s Community Safety Team will be out and about in Annesley Woodhouse today (Tuesday 21 March) following a serious fire on Forest Road last week.https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/Staff-head-out-into-Ashfield-community-following-serious-fire.aspxStaff head out into Ashfield community following serious fire<p>​Firefighters and members of Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service's Community Safety Team will be out and about in Annesley Woodhouse today (Tuesday 21 March) following a serious fire on Forest Road last week.</p><p>The team will be looking to speak to people in the local area and offer a variety of home fire safety advice, as well as some general reassurance, after an 87-year-old man's house was severely damaged in a blaze that took hold on Friday (17 March).</p><p>Crews from Ashfield, Mansfield and Hucknall were called to the fire at around 8.45am and upon arrival found a fire located on the ground floor. Swift action ensured the fire was extinguished safely and spread was prevented, however the house has been left uninhabitable due to severe fire and smoke damage.</p><p>Following the fire, the occupant of the property was taken to hospital by East Midlands Ambulance Service with some minor injuries.</p><p>A subsequent fire investigation into the cause of the fire revealed that it had started accidentally.</p><p>"This incident, and the fact the house is now uninhabitable, shows just how devastating fire can be," said Robyn Ellis, Risk Reduction Officer for Ashfield. </p><p>"However, we really want to emphasise that there are a number of steps people can take to reduce the risk of such an incident happening to them – and that is why we will be on hand between 10am and 12 noon today (Tuesday 21 March) to offer people what could be life-saving advice.</p><p>"What we are particularly keen to highlight is that this individual was an elderly gentleman who lived on his own. A lot of the serious house fires that we have dealt with in recent years have also involved elderly people who live alone, and we would like to encourage anybody who has elderly friends, relatives or neighbours, to maybe take five minutes on a regular basis to just check that they are OK, and that they are living in a safe environment.</p><p>"What this means is just checking that they have working smoke alarms, that they have adequate escape plans and routes in place, and that they aren't regularly doing things such as disposing of cigarettes on carpets, or leaving cooking unattended."</p><p>For further advice on home fire safety, please visit <a href="https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/your-safety"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">www.notts-fire.gov.uk/your-safety</span></a>.

Collingham crew go the extra mile to support local communityFirefighters in Collingham have been going the extra mile to support their local community in recent weeks – by attending medical emergencies as part of a national Emergency First Responder Scheme (EFR) trial.https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/Collingham-crew-go-the-extra-mile-to-support-local-community.aspxCollingham crew go the extra mile to support local community<p>​Firefighters in Collingham have been going the extra mile to support their local community in recent weeks – by attending medical emergencies as part of a national Emergency First Responder Scheme (EFR) trial.</p><p>The retained crew – who normally attend the fire station from home or work when alerted by a pager – took on the extra responsibility in January and have attended more than 50 medical calls so far. </p><p>As part of the scheme, unlike a normal fire and rescue call where they will attend the station and ride the fire engine, the firefighters take the first responder car home with them and are mobilised by East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS), after an ambulance, to emergencies where they may be able to get there a few minutes earlier – giving patients a much better chance of survival.</p><p>So far the calls have seen the crew giving vital medical care to patients in areas from within Collignham to as far as the Lincolnshire border, including helping people who have been unconscious, and others who were suffering from chest pain.</p><p>"We've got a number of first and co-responding schemes running across Nottinghamshire at the minute and I'm really pleased that we've been able to extend this trial to Collingham," said Group Manager Damien West, who oversees both the Service's North Group and also the Emergency First Responder Scheme trial.</p><p>"The crew has done an excellent job in organising the extra training they have needed to take part and, as the figures show, have already helped a significant amount of people in their local area."</p><p>The Collingham crew took over the Emergency First Responder responsibility from colleagues at Newark who had been doing the trial, along with colleagues from Harworth, since it first began in 2015.</p><p>"As a crew we are committed to helping people in our local community, which is why we didn't think twice about joining the Emergency First Responder scheme," said Collingham Watch Manager, Wayne Brooks.</p><p>"We don't attend medical emergencies instead of an ambulance, but the fact that we all live within the village means that we may be able to get to patients that little bit quicker than an ambulance.</p><p>"This can potentially mean patients are given treatment sooner and, if this gives people a better chance of survival then it really is only a good thing. Everybody has received us really well so far and the team on station have done an exceptional job in taking on the new responsibility.</p><p>"We are obviously all given medical training on our firefighter courses, so it has made a great deal of sense for us to be given the chance to use these life-saving skills within the Collingham area." </p><p>Also commenting on the trial, Pete Ripley, EMAS Associate Director of Operations said: "The community focused response model is something we have been doing for a number of years. We have Community First Responders (CFRs) and retained fire responders across the whole East Midlands and benefits are seen for those patients in a time critical emergency such as cardiac arrest.</p><p>"Having someone there who can provide basic life support, including defibrillation and CPR, within minutes of the collapse happening will improve the patient's chance of survival."</p>
