Top Information For 2015 On Deciding On Major Factors Of House Fires In Nottingham

The Service received a call at 08:26 hours this morning. The overheated cargo was discovered as soon as one of the ships holds was opened on arrival at the Port. Approximately 100 tonnes of pellets were unloaded from the ship by Port of Tyne cranes before being spread across the quayside and cooled by crews with water jets. In total, six pumping appliances, one Aerial Ladder Platform, a Command Support Unit and a fire boat were in attendance from stations across Tyne and Wear. Assistant Chief Officer, John Baines, Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service said: "This was a difficult incident for the crews. The smouldering cargo was deep seated inside the hold of the vessel which was moored on the river. Our crews, working together with Port of Tyne staff, continually assessed operational tactics to deal with the difficult conditions they faced. Fire crews who were mobilised from all over Tyne and Wear should be praised for their professionalism and swift actions which helped to bring the situation under control quickly. Firefighters remained on-site for some time and we would like to thank the Port of Tyne for their assistance. No-one was injured in the incident.

Cleveland Fire Brigade launches campaign to tackle arson in the summer holidays Enough is Enough! Cleveland Fire Brigade launches campaign to tackle arson in the summer holidays Friday 17 July 2015 Jill Barber There will be no let-up in our efforts to tackle arson in our communities thats the message from Cleveland Fire Brigade as it launches its summer campaign to stop deliberate fires. Arson accounts for around 70% of fires across Cleveland and the Brigades Enough is Enough campaign aims to educate young people and the wider public about the dangers and consequences of starting fires. Last year, deliberate fires in the Cleveland area increased by 18 per cent during the eight week period covering the school summer holidays compared to the previous eight weeks. This totalled 456 fires from 11 July to 7 September compared to 388 from 16 May to 11 July. Phil Lancaster, Director of Community Protection with Cleveland Fire Brigade, said: Arson ruins lives, communities and local businesses and our message is quite simple: Enough is Enough. We are watching you and anyone who starts a deliberate fire is likely to be caught. Our ongoing campaign involves targeting hot-spot areas and well be working closely with the Police and other organisations over the summer. North Shore Academy in Stockton-on-Tees hosted the launch which brought together firefighters, young people, community leaders and other key agencies. Pupils were able to view fire appliances, including a hydraulic platform and test their agility on the Brigades climbing wall. Firefighters were also on hand to give out fire safety advice. Mr Lancaster added: Were grateful to North Shore Academy for hosting our launch and allowing us to deliver our messages right into the heart of Stocktons community.

New York Agrees To $3.8 Million Payout Over Death Of Inmate At Rikers Island Correctional Facility


17. Echevarria swallowed a toxic ball of soap -- presumably to get out of solitary confinement -- which caused fatal injuries to his insides. As his condition deteriorated, he vomited and spit blood on the window of his cell. However, despite being informed of Echevarrias worsening condition, Capt.Terrence Pendergrass, 51, refused to call a doctor to see him. The parties have reached a settlement in principle that brings closure to the family of a tragic matter, a spokesperson for the citys law department said, according to the Daily News. The deal came after Pendergrass was sentenced to a five-year prison term for his role in Echevarria'sdeath. The settlement is an acknowledgement of the seriousness of what occurred, the familys lawyer, Joshua Kellner, said following the announcement of the payout. Its not a happy day for the family," he added."It doesnt bring Jason back." Ramon Echevarria, Jasons father, refused to comment after the announcement. Kellner described him as being emotionally exhausted. Pendergrass was the only prison guard charged in the incident, although others were called to testify in court. It was an entire cell block of correctional officers who walked by an did nothing, Kellner said. Just last year, the city paid$2.25 million after another inmate, Jerome Murdough, died due to the heat in his cell at Rikers Island. Concern about the treatment of inmates at the facility has been persistent and widespread. In October, a federal judge presented a plan to reform Rikers Island so as to tackle incidents of brutality towards prisoners by guards.

Cleveland Fire Brigade has been working closely with one of the areas major haulage firms to help ensure that the companys drivers stay safe at the wheel. The Brigade have been supporting Bertschi UK Ltds driver training programme delivering a number of sessions at the firms structured training days held recently at Middlesbroughs Riverside Stadium. More than a quarter of all road traffic incidents involve people who are driving as part of their work. Research also shows that around 20 people are killed and 250 seriously injured every week when either driving or using the road for work-related purposes. Andrew Bright of Cleveland Fire Brigade, said: The Fire Brigade is often first at the scene when a road traffic collision occurs so we know all about the carnage that can result and the devastating impact it can have on families. Driving a heavy goods vehicle clearly brings added responsibilities and if something goes wrong the consequences can have fatal implications. During the training sessions we have been focussing on what we call the Fatal Four which are responsible for a large proportion of traffic collisions. These are speed, distracted driving such as using a mobile phone, alcohol & drugs, and seat belt compliance. In addition the dangers of driver fatigue were also covered. Employers have a responsibility under the Health and Safety at Work Act to ensure that others are not put at risk by work-related activities and that includes driving.



The design of a fire door has an intumescent strip along the sides of the door or its frame. This seal is pretty much hidden during normal use, but expands when subjected to extreme heat eliminating the gap between door and door frame thereby creating a barrier stopping fire and harmful fumes from entering the room. Clicking the link will show you more information on oak fire doors. You will also find a huge selection of modern, stylish fire doors which are all available at great, online prices

Some Information On Details Of Smoke Detectors In Nottingham

Last year, NWAS responded to 5,486 incidents in Greater Manchester where the patient had suffered a cardiac arrest. This highlights the need to increase skills and confidence across the region, to give every person the best chance of survival. A survey of adults in the North West by the BHF revealed that just 44% know CPR. Just 36% of adults in the North West would be confident of performing immediate CPR if someone collapsed in front of them 61% of people would be worried about knowing what to do if someone collapsed with a cardiac arrest in front of them 64% of those who were worried said they feared making things worse by trying to help 45% of those who were worried admitted they would feel helpless Only 20% of people were able to correctly identify the signs2 that someone has had a cardiac arrest Simon Gillespie, Chief Executive at the British Heart Foundation, said: Survival rates for cardiac arrest are critically low in the North West and far too many lives are lost needlessly because not enough people have the skills and confidence to carry out lifesaving CPR. Sadly, you are most likely to witness a cardiac arrest at home, which is why its so important that more people are trained and are able to act in that situation. Performing CPR in those vital immediate minutes after a cardiac arrest can, in some cases, double a persons chance of survival. This unique partnership between three lifesaving organisations will give everyone across Manchester easy access to learn how to help save a life and create a Nation of Lifesavers. Following todays events, the CPR kits provided to GMFRS by the BHF will also be used on fire stations to train other community groups. NWAS Community Engagement Manager, Andrew Redgrave said: Earlier this year we launched our Cardiac Smart campaign to have the installation of AEDs in public places a legal requirement, in the same way that fire extinguishers are. Those who suffer a cardiac arrest will receive treatment when the ambulance crew arrives but if a member of the public can start that process while help is on the way, it can make a huge difference to their chances of survival. To help BHF create a Nation of Lifesavers please visit www.bhf.org.uk/lifesavers Notes to Editor All survey figures, unless stated otherwise, are from YouGov Plc. Total sample size was 402 adults. Fieldwork was undertaken between October 5 and 7, 2015.

The minimum rating for domestic premises is FD30, meaning that it provides 30 minutes resistance to fire. You'll find a huge range of fire doors, many with free UK delivery on

Quantum cameras will be able to visualise gas leaks, see clearly through smoke, look round corners or underneath the skin. Quantum sensors developed by the Hub will detect single contaminant molecules and detect electromagnetic and gravitational fields with exceptional sensitivity. The University of Glasgow-led hub will partner with academics from the universities of Bristol, Edinburgh, Oxford, Strathclyde, and Heriot-Watt University. The University of Oxford (led by Professor Ian Walmsley) - Networked Quantum Information Technologies (NQIT) (Quantum Computing/Simulation) Quantum information processing will enable users to solve problems that even the most powerful of today's supercomputers struggle with. They will accelerate the discovery of new drugs or materials by simulating different molecular designs using programmable software, thus dramatically reducing the laborious trial and error of making each molecule in the laboratory. Another application is making sense of 'big data', the immense torrent of information about economics, climate, and health that can help us make better predictions of future trends. The Oxford-led hub will partner with academics from the universities of Bath, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Leeds, Southampton, Strathclyde, Sussex and Warwick, as well as dozens of national and international companies.

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service has contingency plans in place to ensure 999 calls are responded to during the proposed strike periods, but resources will be limited. Chief Fire Officer John Buckley said: The Service will respond to incidents with trained firefighters using recognised fire and rescue equipment but, with the level of operational cover significantly lower than usual, it may take longer for crews to get there. I would therefore urge people to take extra care, either while at home, at work, or when out and about visiting family and friends and making the most of the long Bank Holiday weekend. They should be particularly careful when travelling on our roads, which can be extremely busy at this time of year. Mr Buckley said people can also help by only dialling 999 in a genuine emergency. Naturally we would prefer to prevent incidents from occurring whenever possible but, if they do, we will respond, he said. I sincerely hope for a speedy resolution to the dispute between the FBU and the government. Businesses also need to be aware of the reduced level of cover, which means that Automatic Fire Alarms will not be responded to unless followed up with a 999 call. Businesses should review their fire risk assessments and evacuation plans to take this into account. Information for business owners is available at www.notts-fire.gov.uk . The public and business community are advised that: 999 calls will be responded to by trained firefighters, but resources will be significantly lower than usual; you should therefore only call 999 if its a genuine emergency. The Service will NOT respond to Automatic Fire Alarms during industrial action unless it is followed up with a 999 call stating that there is a genuine emergency.

Ideas For Consideration Of Down-to-earth Methods For Smoke Detectors In London

In total the Brigade attended 99 incidents on 5 November, 36 of which were fires. There were 26 deliberate bonfires compared to 48 on Bonfire Night last year. Cleveland Fire Brigade figures 5 November 2014 2015 %+/- Total Incidents162 99 -38.9 Fires 75 36 -52.0 Deliberate Secondary Fires (grassland/refuse)69 31 -55.1 Bonfire-related fires48 26 -45.8 Phil Lancaster, Director of Community Protection with Cleveland Fire Brigade, said: Our staff coped very well last night from managing the calls to our control centre, to assessing the dangers of each bonfire we were notified of, to the crews out and about dealing with incidents. Were pleased to see a reduction in overall incidents including deliberate bonfires and want to thank the public for helping keep bonfire night safe this year. As we move towards the weekend we want to remind people to be safe and the best way to do that is to attend an organised display. If people must buy fireworks for use at home we would urge them to only buy ones which comply with British Standard BS7114 and to please follow the Firework Code. This is not only for their safety but for that of their family and friends as well. The Brigade is also issuing a reminder that only adults should set off fireworks and parents should make their children aware of the dangers of playing with them. The Firework Code Keep fireworks in a closed box Follow the instructions on each firework Light all fireworks at arms length Stand well back Never go back to a lit firework Never put fireworks in your pocket Never throw fireworks Do not drink alcohol if setting off fireworks. If anyone has any information about arson or anti-social behaviour in their area, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or the Police on 101.

England players honour Paris dead ahead of France match - Yahoo News


View photo England players Adam Lallana (left) and captain Wayne Rooney observe a minute's silence in tribute to victims of the Paris attacks during a team training session in London on November 16, 2015 (AFP Photo/Justin Tallis) London (AFP) - England's football squad joined a Europe-wide tribute to victims of the Paris terror attacks ahead of their friendly against France in London on Tuesday. The 20 fit England players, together with the coaching staff, stood for a minute's silence at 11:00 am local time (1100 GMT) before they started their training session at Tottenham Hotspur's training ground in England, north London, on Monday. Similar silences were observed at the same time in major cities all across Europe. After a series of attacks across Paris on Friday that left at least 129 people dead, there had been speculation that Tuesday's match between England and Euro 2016 hosts France at London's Wembley Stadium might be called off. But a spokesman for the French Football Federation told AFP on Saturday: "After talks with the English FA who assured us there was no particular risk in holding the match, we decided to go ahead." FA chairman Greg Dyke, confirming the game would be played as scheduled, said: "We will use the opportunity to pay our respects to all affected and also to express our solidarity with the people of France." His words were echoed by England manager Roy Hodgson, who said the match would be a chance to show that the "football world is united against these atrocities". Meanwhile England fans have been encouraged to join with travelling supporters in singing 'La Marseillaise' when the national anthems of both countries are played before kick-off. Friday's attacks touched football particularly closely, with three suicide bombers blowing themselves up outside the Stade de France as France played Germany. The cousin of France midfielder Lassana Diarra was one of those killed, while the sister of his team-mate Antoine Griezmann escaped unhurt from the assault on the Bataclan concert hall. France coach Didier Deschamps was due to hold a press conference at Wembley later Monday before his squad's training session at the ground. Deschamps's side will be looking to record a sixth straight win following their 2-0 victory over world champions Germany.

Fire and rescue crews have been called to assist at 44 crashes in the county since 1 December, 16 of which have required casualties to be cut free. Mr Buckley said: Our hearts go out to all those people who have been affected by incidents on our roads in the last month, especially the families who have lost loved ones. It is a tragic situation, and I am saddened and shocked both at the number of incidents weve attended and the frighteningly high number of fatalities. There is never a good time to experience an accident on the road, but it is particularly upsetting when these things happen so close to Christmas, a time when families and loved ones should be together. The police will no doubt be working hard to determine the cause of each of these tragic events, but in the meantime I urge everyone to take extreme care when out and about this Christmas. The weather can impact dramatically on road conditions, whether its through heavy rain, ice or the low winter sun obstructing the drivers view, so please do all you can to stay safe and in control of your vehicle. Slow down, avoid distractions and never drive if youve had a drink. We want everyone to enjoy this festive period with their families and friends, and have a peaceful and happy Christmas and New Year. Even if it takes a little more time to get there, arrive safely. Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service is also reminding people to take extra care during three periods of planned industrial action by the Fire Brigades Union as part of a dispute with the government over pensions. These will take place between 7 pm and midnight tonight (24 December), between 6.30 pm and half past midnight on New Years Eve and from 6.30 am to 8.30 am on 3 January 2014. The Service will respond to genuine 999 calls but may be slower than usual due to the limited number of resources available.
