  1. Featured Fire Station ๐Ÿš’ | In our series, we are focusing on the very important work and training that Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service crews undergo on a regular basis. Today we look at the remarkable training that Kingsland fire station did yesterday evening. Last nights training was back to basics brushing up on ladder pitching skills for the crews who were kindly allowed by Vaughan farms of kingsland to use their yard and buildings for this essential training excercise. Itโ€™s always a benefit using different venues to practice ๐Ÿš’๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿชœ 'Thank You For Your Service' to the crews at Kingsland Fire Station and to all our emergency services for the vital work and support they provide to the community. ๐Ÿ“ธ HWFRS Kingsland

  4. This weekend, HWFRS are contributing to an NFCC initiative to deliver kit and equipment safely and quickly to Ukraine to support the Ukrainian Fire & Rescue Service's response to the emerging crisis. Two Service volunteers are driving the fully packed vans to the UK collection point, containing a wide range of equipment that the Service is donating. The equipment includes personal protection equipment, filters for respiratory protection equipment, ventilation fans, scoop stretchers and chemical protection suits. Next week, following Government approval, the Service will be donating a fire appliance which will form part of the convoy being driven to Poland. The deployment of these donations is being supported by funding from the Home Office, Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office and others and coordinated by the UK charity Fire Aid. When it reaches Ukraine, the equipment will be used to support firefighters, emergency services and volunteers who are battling together on the front line, dealing daily with fires and other emergencies to protect lives, people and property as the invasion devastates the country. Area Commander Jon Butlin, the Serviceโ€™s Assistant Director - Response, said: โ€œThis is an extremely worthy cause for the Service to be supporting, and I would like to thank everyone who has volunteered to drive the equipment to the collection point this weekend, and those that have assisted in prepping the equipment and the appliance at high speed to get it ready in time.โ€ For more information about the NFCC Initiative please click on the following our unique link ๐Ÿ‘‰ https://hfd.news/q09

  9. Yesterday they helped rescue a cat from the river and today theyโ€™ve been out with their colleagues from Bromyard Fire Station helping get a horse out of a ditch heโ€™d fallen into this morning. 32 yr old Shirenski found himself in an awkward position and was unable to get up. Great teamwork from the crews, his owners, neighbours and the vet...resulted in Shirenski getting back on to his feet after a few hours. Another wonderful rescue story from professional and dedicated firefighters who do a lot more work besides tackling fires ๐Ÿ“ท HWFRS Leominster #herefordvoice #herefordshirenews #herefordshire
