Business speaks out on year on after fireCousins Collective sadly lost everything in result of the fire.https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/Business-speaks-out-on-year-on-after-fire.aspxBusiness speaks out on year on after fire<p>In November 2020, crews from West Bridgford, East Leake and London Road attended an electrical fire in Keyworth. The fire was in a single storey building which was home to business 'Cousins Collective'. </p><p>Cousins Collective sadly lost everything in result of the fire.</p><p>This month marks a year since this incident happened, as well as Electrical Safety Month, so we spoke with business owner, Ellie, to see how she is getting on.</p><p>Ellie Mortimer-Gill said: "I am now running my business from a new unit in Loughborough, and I have become extremely cautious and careful.</p><p>"When I moved into the new unit, I got all the electrics checked. This highlighted a fault, so I am very glad I had these checks run. </p><p>"I make sure all plugs are not overloaded and not close to anything flammable and that everything is turned off when leaving the unit.</p><p>"All of this seems like a long-winded process but all I need to do is think back to what happened a year ago."</p><p>We want to highlight the importance of Electrical Safety Month, so we can keep our communities safe and prevent these incidents from happening. </p><p>Luke Cook, Business Education Advocate at NFRS, said: "This incident shows you that electrical fires do occur. Although we cannot identify the exact cause of this incident, we want to prevent them from happening, so please follow our general electrical safety advice.</p><p>"Do not overload your sockets, as they can overheat and cause fires, and please check all leads are undamaged before use.</p><p>"We are also a society of portable appliance users that require us to charge the batteries. You should check the condition of both the battery and chargers and monitor them for signs of damage and excessive heating during their operation."<br></p>

The return of Hucknall's 12 days of ChristmasHucknall Fire Station’s ‘12 days of Christmas’ campaign is returning after a successful year last year.https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/Hucknall-days-of-Christmas.aspxThe return of Hucknall's 12 days of Christmas<p>Hucknall Fire Station's '12 days of Christmas' campaign is returning after a successful year last year. </p><p>The Christmas initiative saw Hucknall Fire Station ask their local community to create food parcels to support the local foodbank, Under one Roof. The uptake and response was amazing, and firefighters were able to provide 350 bags worth of food. </p><p>Throughout the year they have continued to help Under one Roof with regular weekly donations however to help them build their stock and get enough food for individuals over Christmas, firefighters have devised another 12 days of Christmas 'plan' for people to follow. </p><p>Starting with day one being a bag for life, firefighters encouraged the community to donate one new item a day to go in their bag. After the 12 days are complete, crews will set off to collect donations from various locations within Hucknall.  </p><p>On-Call Firefighter and donation organiser, Nick Pratt, said: "Last year so many families and individuals who were struggling received hampers and donations from our local community and these made an enormous difference to them, especially at Christmas. </p><p>"We understand that things may still be pretty tough for people, so in addition to the 12 days of Christmas, we are asking for people to donate selection boxes. A single £1 selection box will put a massive smile on a child's face. </p><p>"We will be visiting schools who have agreed to take part on Friday 10 December and we aim to collect all donations on Saturday 11 December this year."<br></p><p>Marcus Pratt. who is also organising this initiative, said: "The generosity of our local community and  the uptake this year has been amazing so far, so thank you to everyone who is already taking part and for the constant support for campaigns like this one. We understand not everyone can take part, so all we ask is for people to spread the word so we can make a difference to those in need."</p><p>For more information on Hucknall's 12 days of Christmas, please visit their Facebook page.
