Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service delivers its 10,000th parcel of essentials as part of coronavirus pandemic initiative
The fire service has delivered its 10,000th parcel in an initiative that saw them distributing essentials to Nottinghamshire's most vulnerable communities during the coronavirus pandemic.
Crews around the county have been working with pharmacies and food banks to deliver medication and food parcels to local communities since lockdown began.
Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) said all its fire stations worked hard during the pandemic to attend incidents as normal and continue to keep communities safe and well.
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.”
