The new build includes office space, meeting rooms, fire engine bays and external training tower. The new facility includes several energy-saving features, including intelligent lighting and solar panels fitted to the roof, both of which will reduce future running costs. </p><p>Ian Pritchard, Assistant Chief Officer at Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “To be shortlisted for this award is a testament to the hard work of everyone involved with the project.</p><p>“This was the first time we kept a full-time fire station operational whilst a new facility was built on the same site.</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/7xiGzV1VPPU" frameborder="0"></iframe> </div><p><em>A walk through of Newark Fire Station from the official opening in September.</em></p><p>“This would not have been possible without the collaborative approach taken by Turner & Townsend, The Gelder Group and Maber Architects.”</p><p>Richard Cropley, District Manager for Newark and Sherwood said: “I think the station shows the Service’s commitment to serving the community in Newark for many years to come – with the station expected to have a life of 50 years.”</p><p>Mark Deakin, Director at Turner & Townsend in Nottingham, added: “It was great to have the opportunity to support the Fire Service in the development of Newark Fire Station.

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>
