While our incredible NHS works tirelessly to tackle the coronavirus (COVID-19) spread, the work of our Fire and Rescue Services cannot go unmentioned as they continue to keep the country safe.
We thought we’d share just a few examples of the extraordinary lengths our emergency services are going to out in their communities during this time.
But first, an important reminder from Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue.
📣 Our firefighters have a message for you 🚒 📣

With more people working from home there's a lot more cars parked up in the streets and housing estates. Please park safe and leave enough room for your emergency services to get through. #CantHelpYouIfWeCantGetThru @NEAmbulance @northumbriapol pic.twitter.com/qddgMMSZsB

Just a few of the faces from last night’s ambo shift, a paramedic who’s also an ED Nurse, a firefighter who’s also an EVO, a stocker washer keeping the trucks kitted, everyone doing their bit.
