As we go into lockdown again on Thursday 5 November, we're here to keep you safe by responding to emergencies and continuing with vital safety inspections and educational work.
We will, of course, be doing so with social distancing, enhanced cleaning and other changes to our operations to keep you and our staff safe.
We will continue to carry out prevention and protection work with those identified as being the most vulnerable and at risk, and in business premises which are confirmed as COVID-secure.
We will continue to work closely with other organisations. For example, some of our employees have volunteered to support East Midlands Ambulance Service by driving urgent care patients to and from hospital and home, helping elderly, vulnerable or poorly patients across the region.
Chief Fire Officer John Buckley said: “Throughout the pandemic we have maintained our core functions in responding to incidents, protecting the most vulnerable in our society, supporting our partners, such as East Midlands Ambulance Service, and helping out with the delivery of food and medication in our local communities.
“As we move into this next phase of the pandemic, we are constantly reviewing our Business Continuity Plans so that we can carry on providing the professional emergency service on which our communities depend."
