Remembering those lost in the Grenfell Tower tragedy

Posted on 14 June 2022

On the fifth anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire, the National Fire Chief’s Council and Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service is remembering those who lost their lives and people who continue to be affected by the tragedy.

Mark Hardingham, NFCC Chair, said: “It is hard to believe five years have passed since the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower.

“Today I will be taking time to reflect on the tragedy and remember the 72 people who lost their lives, those who were injured, along with the community who continue to be impacted by the terrible events that evening.

“The inquiry is ongoing and we continue to hear evidence which has been distressing for everyone involved. I hope that the findings will bring much-needed answers for families and friends.

“We continue to work with government and fire and rescue services to improve how they respond to fires and the building safety regime, and ensure people feel safe in their homes.”

Chief Fire Officer Craig Parkin added: “This tragedy is still very much in our minds and our thoughts continue to be with those that were lost or affected by the tragedy.

“Today we join our fire service counterparts across the country in remembering all those affected and it must serve to remind us of the role Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service has in creating safer communities and the focus on the improvements needed to ensure an event like this does not happen again."
