Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service’s vision is to put safety at the heart of the community and make Nottingham and Nottinghamshire a safer place to live, work and visit. A lot of its work is focused on preventing accidents and injuries through education and safety intervention, as well as responding to emergencies whenever needed.
Staff respond to a variety of emergency incidents, such as fires, floods and road traffic collisions, and carry out regular home safety checks, as well as other duties.
Other roles include fire control operators who receive and manage 999 calls, fire protection officers responsible for fire safety legislation, community safety and education experts, and a team of support staff.
For over 160 years, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary has independently assessed and reported on the efficiency and effectiveness of police forces and policing, in the public interest.
In summer 2017, HMIC (now HMICFRS) took on inspections of England’s fire & rescue services, assessing and reporting on their efficiency, effectiveness and leadership.
