Poem written to show our response to COVID


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.
