Our Equipment and Hydrant Maintenance Technician, Mick Peet,
has written a short poem around our response to the Covid-19 pandemic so far.
The poem highlights the efforts made from all staff at
Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service in our new ways of working.
24 staff have stepped up to work at Covid vaccination
sites around the county and have administered 7,764 vaccines so far.
We recently sent six staff members to mass testing
sites, where they have been building the centres and training other volunteers
in order for them to test members of the public. This has facilitated in
excess of 5,000 tests being administered.
We have continued to deliver food and medication parcels to
vulnerable communities around Nottinghamshire, and last week crews from
Edwinstowe Fire Station delivered the 12,000th parcel.
Our EMAS volunteers have now completed 300 shifts, and last
week transported the 1,000th patient.
A special thank you goes out to everyone in the Service for
their efforts during the pandemic, and thank you to Mick for writing this poem.
