From the internationally recognised Sherwood Forest to the 3,400 acres of Clumber Park, rural Nottinghamshire is home to some amazing landmarks and spectacular scenery. Our mission at Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service is therefore to ensure that those people that live in, work in, and visit the countryside are free to enjoy it safely.
To increase our awareness of potential risk premises/sites within our communities. Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service crews and prevention teams carry out site-specific risk inspections of which the data collected is recorded and speedily accessible to crews when on station and mobile at incidents.
Incidents on farms have often been complicated to resolve due to poor water supplies and various industry-related hazards. Through engagement with our community’s crews gather information on-site and carry out Arson Reduction Checklists whilst offering advice.
This awareness of hazards on site will not only give crews immediate risk information when dealing with an incident but can also be used to reduce risks and hazards by way of operational or fires safety advice. Having this information beforehand is crucial to preventing everyday incidents.
