Supporting National Day of Reflection

23/03/2021

At Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) we are supporting a national day to remember and reflect on the past year, since the UK went into the first lockdown in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are taking a moment to remember those who have died during the pandemic, and to show support for everyone who has been bereaved, as well as having a hope and wish for the future.

Spearheaded by end of life charity Marie Curie, we are committed to supporting the National Day of Reflection, alongside a host of organisations, MPs, and celebrities who are backing the day.

Marie Curie estimates that over three million people have been bereaved since the pandemic began, yet many have been unable to properly say goodbye to loved ones or grieve.

The National Day of Reflection will give the nation and communities a moment to remember, grieve and celebrate everyone who has died during this time and show support for our families, friends and colleagues who are grieving.

Our employees will be taking a minute to reflect at 12 noon today (Tuesday 23 March) for those who have died during the pandemic; and take a moment to connect with someone who has been bereaved.

Chief Fire Officer, John Buckley, speaks out in reflection to the National Day of Reflection.
