Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service – this is our year

Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service has released their annual review, which takes a look back at all the incredible work our staff do day and night, 365 days a year.

The video focuses on the people who protect Warwickshire, who keep them safe – from fire control to firefighters, the community fire prevention team to the business protection team.

All of these people work together. They put out fires, teach your kids to keep themselves and others safe, protect the vulnerable by fitting smoke alarms and make sure businesses are fire safe.

This year alone they’ve taken more than 10,000 emergency calls and attended 3934 emergency incidents.

From the roads of Rugby to the lanes of Leamington – they are there for you, protecting you and keeping you safe.

I’m proud of all of my staff and their commitment and desire to go the extra mile to help others.”

Warwickshire County Councillor Andy Crump, Portfolio Holder for Fire and Community Safety said: “I’m incredibly proud of the work Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service do for the communities in Warwickshire. It’s clear the good work they do isn’t just about putting out fires, they are a team with a simple mission – keeping the people of Warwickshire safe.”
