NFRS pass the delivery of the 10,000th parcel

11/09/2020

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) have passed the delivery of the 10,000th parcel after distributing them throughout Nottinghamshire’s most vulnerable communities during the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Today, crews around the county have been out to local communities to deliver food and medication parcels, like they have been doing since the UK went into lockdown and we have now delivered over 10,000 parcels.

All fire stations in Nottinghamshire have worked ever so hard during the pandemic, to not only attend incidents like normal, but to continue to keep the local communities safe and well - crews have been helping local pharmacies and food banks distribute food and medication.

Group Manager, Andy Macey, said: “All of our crews have been working extremely hard throughout these times. Not only have they been attending incidents as normal, they have been helping deliver food and medication around Nottinghamshire.

“Hitting a number like 10,000 is special for NFRS, as it just proves how hard everyone has been working. We are all proud of our crews with how they have responded to these difficult times.”

“Community work has always been a drive for the Service, but these times have just shown us how vital it is to be there for the community.”

Gary Fordham, Watch Manager at Stapleford Fire Station said: “All of us have been making sure people still get their medication and food throughout the pandemic. It has been rewarding to be able to continue to keep communities safe and make a difference.”
