Beds Fire Service share the love for the NHS

Kempston Fire Station NHS

Firefighters at Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service got creative to praise NHS workers for their service during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Watch Commander Graeme Hobson said, “Our partners at the NHS are going through a very difficult time and we are extremely grateful for all the work they do.

“We understand the sacrifices they are making and so wanted to create a special tribute to say thanks to our NHS colleagues. We hope the visual display will lift some spirits and let them know the Service fully supports them.”

Station Commander Simon Williams said, “The best thing we can all do to support the NHS at this time is to follow national guidance and stay at home.

“We need to protect the most vulnerable in our communities, alongside reducing the pressure on the NHS and their resources. We therefore encourage everyone to keep safe and stay at home, in order to save lives.”

Alongside the NHS colleagues, Bedfordshire operational staff are continuing to work around the clock to ensure they are available for incidents across the county and to help protect communities.

With precautionary protective clothing and procedures in place, the Service is well-equipped to protect their frontline staff as much as possible. The Service encourage people to stay at home and to look on their website for more information on how to keep safe in the home.
