New Joint Fire and Police Cadet base launchedNottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service and Nottinghamshire Police have jointly opened a new cadet base in the city to boost engagement with young people.https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/New-Joint-Fire-and-Police-Cadet-base-launched.aspxNew Joint Fire and Police Cadet base launched<p>​Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service and Nottinghamshire Police have jointly opened a new cadet base in the city to boost engagement with young people.</p><p>The base will be situated at Hyson Green Youth Club.</p><p>The new joint cadet base is the latest collaboration between both organizations and it's hoped it will encourage further engagement with young people.</p><p>The eight-week programme is set to begin in September, following a pilot of the scheme which culminated in a presentation evening yesterday (Tuesday 25 June).</p><p>Bryn Coleman, Area Manager at NFRS and the Service’s Collaboration Lead said: “This joint venture presents us with a unique and exciting way to engage with young people. </p><p>“The cadets will not only learn the benefits of team work and build their confidence through the training, but also receive life-saving fire safety advice in an engaging way. </p><p>“They’ll also get a chance to take part in some of the drills and work that our firefighters do. Who knows – maybe we may see them on station one day!”</p><p>Chief Inspector Suk Verma said: "The unique collaborative cadet base is fantastic news for the young people of Nottingham and also the local community in Hyson Green. It demonstrates that we can work together both at major incidents, but also at a grass roots level”</p><p>"The force's current volunteer police cadet programme are doing some great work currently on a number of projects and schemes. </p><p>"We are bringing in new and innovative methods to offer our local youth the chance to learn about Policing, but most importantly good values. Recently we have broken down barriers to allow everyone to apply to become a police cadet with Nottinghamshire Police. </p><p>"We have expanded our mini police and Cadet structure into the inner city areas, whereby trust and confidence towards the police still remains a challenge.</p><p>"This move will allow the force to give early intervention advice and provide us a real outlet to reach those underrepresented groups and build strong relationships for the future.</p>
HMICFRS publish inspection report for Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue ServiceHer Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) has today (20 June 2019) published its first inspection report for Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS).https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/HMICFRS-publish-inspection-report-for-Nottinghamshire-Fire-and-Rescue-Service.aspxHMICFRS publish inspection report for Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service<p>​Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) has today (20 June 2019) published its <a href="https://www.justiceinspectorates.gov.uk/hmicfrs/wp-content/uploads/nottinghamshire-fire-and-rescue-service-report-2018-19.pdf"><strong>first inspection report for Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS).</strong></a>  The report uses different criteria to assess performance against three themes – effectiveness, efficiency and people – using both qualitative and quantitative research.  NFRS has been rated ‘good’ in two areas and the rest ‘Requires Improvement’.</p><p>This is the first time that HMICFRS has inspected fire and rescue services across England and NFRS is part of the second group of services receiving their reports today. The inspection has assessed how effectively and efficiently NFRS prevents, protects the public against and responds to fires and other emergencies.  It has also assessed how well it looks after its staff.</p><p>The report has highlighted that NFRS has a good understanding of the risks in the Nottinghamshire area and that it works well with partner organisations.  It has been rated ‘Good’ at protecting the public through fire regulation, taking legal action where necessary, and at responding to national risks. The inspection has also found that NFRS effectively promotes its values and culture and that staff are positive about the way the Service looks after their safety and wellbeing.</p><p>Areas for improvement include using its integrated risk management plan (IRMP) to ensure it keeps the public safe and secure from the risks identified; evaluating prevention work to understand the benefits better; to accelerate plans to improve ICT so that the Service makes best use of available technology to support operational effectiveness and efficiency; and to put appropriate mechanisms in place to enable closer monitoring of hours worked by staff. </p><p>NFRS Chief Fire Officer, John Buckley, said: "We have worked closely with HMICFRS throughout the inspection process and welcome the publication of our first report today.</p><p>"Whilst there is acknowledgement of what we do well, we will not be complacent about what we need to do to improve our performance, to ensure we continue to maintain public confidence in this Service.    </p><p>"Even before the inspection process began we were already aware of these areas and have - and are - making significant steps towards improving our processes and procedures. Our new <a href="/AccessToInformation/ServicePerformance/Documents/NFRS%20Strategic%20Plan%202019-2024.pdf"><strong>Strategic Plan</strong></a> launched in April, that replaces our old IRMP,  outlines our commitment to the safety of those living and working in Nottinghamshire. This, together with individual departmental business plans from across the Service, will help to drive our continuous improvement agenda forward.  </p><p>"We will continue to monitor progress and will regularly report back to the Fire Authority on what has been achieved."</p><p>Councillor Michael Payne, Chair of the Fire Authority said: “We have a high level of trust with our local communities and we will ensure this is maintained.  We do know there will be some challenges ahead, however, we remain confident that the work being carried out now and in the future will increase our effectiveness and efficiency and focus on our staff, ultimately supporting our vision for creating safer communities across Nottinghamshire.”    </p>
Death of Collingham family ruled as accidental​A mother and her two children died following an accidental fire, an inquest heard today (12 June). https://www.notts-fire.gov.uk/nfrs-news/Pages/Death-of-Collingham-family-ruled-as-accidental.aspxDeath of Collingham family ruled as accidental<p>​A mother and her two children died following an accidental fire, an inquest heard today (12 June). </p><p>Senior Coroner for Nottinghamshire, Ms Mairin Casey, ruled that Justine Collison, 32, and her two children, Isabella, aged eight, and Harvey, aged five, died from smoke inhalation during a fire at their home on Woodhill Road on 15 December 2018. </p><p>Firefighters from Collingham and Newark Fire Stations were called to the property shortly after 7am to find the house well alight. </p><p>The fire was determined as starting in the conservatory, but due to the significant damage caused, it was impossible to say for certain what started the fire.<br>Returning her conclusion of accidental death, said: “I join with many others today in expressing my deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Justine, Isabella and Harvey whose lives were tragically cut short.</p><p>“Thanks to a thorough investigation by both Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service and Nottinghamshire Police I can record a verdict of accidental death.”</p><div class="ms-rtestate-read ms-rte-embedcode ms-rte-embedil ms-rtestate-notify"><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ptNK6lYcBKM" frameborder="0"></iframe> </div><p><br></p><p>Area Manager, Damien West said: “I speak for the whole of Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service when I say that our thoughts go out to the family and friends of Justine, Isabella and Harvey. They tragically lost their lives in a house fire at their home on Woodhill Road, Collingham last year.</p><p>“I hope that the findings of this inquest will bring some closure to all concerned, but we must not let this tragedy be in vain.  It is vital that we continue to raise the awareness of fire safety to avoid further incidents. </p><p>“I would ask everyone to ensure that their families, friends and neighbours have working smoke alarms, a plan of what to do in an emergency and a night-time routine to turn off electrics and close internal doors”<br></p><p>“I would finally like to thank all the staff who attended this incident from beginning to end, their contribution cannot be overstated. All corners of the Service volunteered to go out into the community in the days following the incident to provide reassurance and advice.”</p>
