New Fire Authority Chair appointedNottingham City Councillor Brian Grocock has been appointed Chair of the Nottinghamshire and City of Nottingham Fire Authority at the Authority’s Annual General Meeting held at Service Headquarters on Friday (9 June). https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/New-Fire-Authority-Chair-appointed-.aspxNew Fire Authority Chair appointed<p>​Nottingham City Councillor Brian Grocock has been appointed Chair of the Nottinghamshire and City of Nottingham Fire Authority at the Authority's Annual General Meeting held at Service Headquarters on Friday (9 June). </p><p>Councillor Michael Payne, who represents Gedling at Nottinghamshire County Council, was elected Vice-Chair. </p><p>In his opening address as Chair, Cllr Grocock welcomed nine new Members to the Authority following the local elections in May. He also took the opportunity to thank previous Members, including former Chair, Councillor Darrell Pulk, who had served on the Fire Authority for 14 years, including 12 as Chair. </p><p>Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Paddy Tipping was invited to sit on the Fire Authority, but while he will be able to attend meetings and contribute to discussions, he will have no voting rights due to a slight oversight in the Policing and Crime Act 2017 which prevents the full appointment of a PCC to a Combined Fire Authority. It is anticipated that moves to amend the Act will begin soon. </p><p>Cllr Grocock, who has been a Member of the Fire Authority for almost 20 years, paid tribute to those affected by the recent terrorist attacks at Westminster, Manchester and London Bridge, and a minute's silence was observed. </p><p>Appointments were made to the various committees of the Authority, including appointing representatives for the Firefighter Pension Board and Nottinghamshire Fire Safety Limited.  </p><p>You can keep up-to-date with minutes of the Fire Authority meetings, agendas and related reports by visiting Nottingham City Council's <a href="http://committee.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/mgCommitteeDetails.aspx?ID=224">website</a>.</p>
Service issues advice on summer safetyWith temperatures soaring as summer arrives across Nottinghamshire, do you know how to stay safe in the sun? https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/Service-issues-advice-on-summer-safety.aspxService issues advice on summer safety<p>​With temperatures soaring as summer arrives across Nottinghamshire, do you know how to stay safe in the sun? </p><p>Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) is urging everyone to stay safe this Bank Holiday weekend by taking note of advice for road, water and barbeque safety to name just a few.  </p><p>Last month the Service supported Drowning Prevention Week, run by the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC), which targeted runners, walkers, anglers and young drinkers to urge them to be safe around the county's waterways, and this advice is still just as relevant as the weather starts to heat up.</p><p>If you're tempted to take a dip in the water to cool off, remember that drinking alcohol and entering water do not mix, as alcohol impairs even the simplest of movements, meaning it may be harder for you to get out. </p><p>To make sure that you are staying safe this Bank Holiday, here are some of our top safety tips for summer:</p><ul><li>If you are walking or jogging close to water, make sure to take note of warning signs in the area;</li><li>Never enter the water to save someone, as you will be putting yourself at risk. Even the strongest swimmers can get into difficulty, so make sure you call 999 immediately; </li><li>Look around for lifesaving equipment like a lifebelt that you can throw to someone who is in danger; </li><li>Never enter the water after having a drink;</li><li>If you are a parent, make sure to educate your children on the dangers of water and how to be safe around it; </li><li>If you are tempted to swim in hot weather, why not take a trip to your local pool instead?</li><li>If you are getting your BBQ out for the first time this year, take the time to ensure you have a bucket of sand or water nearby for emergencies; </li><li>Never leave your BBQ unattended when lit; </li><li>Keep children and pets away from the BBQ; </li><li>If you are using a disposable BBQ, it is important to remember never to dispose of these while they are still hot; </li><li>Always place your disposable BBQ on an even surface such as bricks or paving slabs; </li><li>Never use any kind of fuel-burning devices such as a BBQ, camping stoves, camping heaters or charcoal grills inside tents or indoors. </li><li>The bank holiday this weekend is set to see people out on the county's roads, and if you are travelling this weekend, make sure that you are driving to arrive and taking care on the roads; </li><li>Always remember to call 999 in the event of an emergency.</li></ul>
Project to rebuild Newark Fire Station enters demolition phaseThe project to re-build Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service’s Newark Fire Station entered its next phase last week – with a partial demolition now in full swing.https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/Project-to-rebuild-Newark-Fire-Station-enters-demolition-phase.aspxProject to rebuild Newark Fire Station enters demolition phase<p>​The project to re-build Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service's Newark Fire Station entered its next phase last week – with a partial demolition now in full swing.</p><p>Contractors moved onto the site on Monday (15 May) to install perimeter fencing and put in place various health and safety measures, before starting the demolition process on Wednesday (17 May).</p><p>This work, which is being carried out by The Gelder Group, will see the red brick buildings to the left of the station's appliance bay be taken down to make way for the brand new station and training tower.</p><p>It marks the start of what is expected to be a 12-month construction process, and comes after the Service obtained planning permission to re-build the station towards the end of last year.</p><p>"After a lot of careful planning, and a competitive tendering process, we're really pleased that our appointed contractor has now moved onto the site and started work on the project," said Ian Pritchard, the Service's Head of Procurement and Resources and the project lead.</p><p>"As local residents will be able to see, they haven't wasted any time in getting to work and will be continuing to progress the demolition over the course of the next few weeks.</p><p>"Once this is done, we will be entering the build stage of the project – which we hope will be completed early next year." </p><p>Whilst work to build the new station is carried out, the current station will remain fully operational to ensure the continued provision of fire cover in and around Newark.</p><p>"The current Newark Fire Station is more than 50 years old and, whilst we will all be sad to see it go, we're very much looking forward to having a brand new home that will hopefully continue to serve the people of Newark for years to come – just as the current station has," said Newark Station Manager, Seth Armstrong.</p><p>"As well as housing our two fires engines, which are crewed by both wholetime and retained staff, the new station will also house our technical rescue unit and is a clear sign of the Service's commitment to keeping Newark, and the surrounding areas, as safe as possible." </p>
