On this page you will find a summary of the messages of thanks we have received in 2022.

January

I would just like to say how much my partner and I appreciate the work of the fire officers. On New Years Eve there was a fire at our property and due to the quick reactions of neighbours seeing the fire and calling the fire service, and the quick response of the firefighters, it wasn’t more serious than it could have potentially been. My partner, myself and our 2 year old were in the property fast asleep while someone set fire to a motorbike against our fence, setting it on fire which then spread to our trees; we had no idea of what had happened until the next morning as we didn’t hear a thing. We were told by the neighbour that if it had been 10 minutes more it would have been a lot more serious so we are massively grateful to those firefighters on duty that night for everything they did. The way we look at it is they have saved our home and potentially our lives with their fast response, I don’t hear people talking enough about the fire service and they really should be, those guys are hero’s in our eyes.

A local councillor and his son went to Bransholme Fire Station with a Christmas Day hamper for Green watch. He said "I am the newly elected councillor so wanted to show them they are remembered for all they do. My son thought they were amazing! Regards"

Thank you to the crew that took time out their busy schedules this evening to drive their truck around lakeside in Scunthorpe. We always look forward to seeing them each year and nice that some were on foot tonight and got to speak to the children. My little boy was so happy to put his donation in the tub and speak to the firefighter.

We received a telephone call from a gentleman who had an incident on 6 January at Daisy Hill in Burstwick which 5 fire engines attended, and he would like to thank Jamie who looked after him during the incident.

“I have just completed the online behavioural assessment, I am enjoying this process and, regardless of the outcome, I would like to thank you for the opportunity. I popped into Clough Road Station today to speak with a member of staff regarding recruitment and he couldn’t have been more helpful. I also stopped 2 firefighters a few months ago at Lidl and they were the same, they all seemed to be VERY helpful and very generous with time and information. It really was a positive interaction.”

Thank you Toni Proctor for your support and advice given during your visit to Cottingham Memorial Club.

February

During the COVID-19 lockdown, Emma Smith made some loombands to show staff at Humberside Fire and Rescue Service that there are people in the community supporting and thinking of them. Emma wanted to make loombands to show staff that they are not alone during the pandemic. Thank you.

We had a great morning with Scunthorpe Blue Watch on Monday and the children haven't stopped talking about it. Thank you for sharing an insight into your profession - we have some very inspired children - and staff! The children have made you a card and in it they have shared their favorite part of the visit.

March

I just wanted to pass on our thanks to you and the Immingham East Fire Station crew, for allowing 1st Healing Cubs to visit the fire station on 7 February.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend due to COVID, but the pack told me all about their visit and it was clear to see that they were very impressed and had ‘the best time ever’ and most importantly, learnt all about fire safety. The Cubs are currently working on their very own special thankyou to the station crew, which I will get out to them as soon as they have finished.
So again, a very big THANKYOU to everyone involved in making this a very special visit and a memorable badge to earn – its so important to vary the ways in which they learn and it was very much appreciated.”

Thank you to Jo Jessop for promoting the Lung Health Checks at North Point Shopping Centre. The initial feedback that we have received has all be really positive, both about the service being in North Hull and also the numbers who are contacting the team after receiving a letter to book appointments. Thank you again for giving us some of your time to help promote this service.

Thankyou to Peaks Lane White Watch who received a letter after showing a school leaver, who is aspiring to be a Firefighter, around the Station.

Bransholme Green Watch from Angi Daley. Thank you so much for your prompt help and support yesterday with the above job you completed fitting five smoke detectors in a very vulnerable and at risk property. Due to the complex needs of the family this has been a great help and given them piece of mind until the council can complete the further repairs to help to make this family safer. The family would like to ‘’Thank the crew, myself and Molly for the support they have received.’

Jo Jessop and Allan Bell received a thank you from Pat Tuohy and his team from PMNW and Marvel College. Great pupil and teacher feedback.

April

A member of the public wanted to thank all those personnel in the fire service for the work carried out in the lockdown and throughout the pandemic. She took time out to travel to Central to make a donation gift of a box of sweets she had personally bought from Amazon.

Rachael Smith and colleagues did a great job of welcoming two people from Going Forward into Employment. They both raved about the visit and stated how well your team communicated with them in a way that fully acknowledged learning disabilities but concentrated on ability and active participation. It was also noted that they learnt a lot about the health improvement and protection work you do too. Awesome support, thank you!

Scunthorpe Green Watch attended an incident involving an elderly female who had collapsed inside her premises. The call was from her son and daughter-in-law, , who would like to pass on their many thanks to the crew. They said that the crew were so professional and took excellent care of the lady.

The Patient Transport Supervisor for YAS, said: " Thank you to Clough Road White Watch, who were at all times professional and compassionate!"

Thank you to two gentlemen who were very thorough and informative throughout the Safe and Well Visit. "Its a wonderful service and I'm aware of a lot more things now so thank you."

Burns Club Easter Event at Clough Road Station - THANKYOU to Katrena and all those who got involved for your help. The families got so much from meeting others following a burn. The staff that were on duty were amazing - Once again, thank you.

May

To Calvert Lane Green Watch, a little boy's father said, "I'm really lost where to even start here... The hospitality your guys showed us at Calvert Lane Station was second to none, they all went above and beyond for our children and ourselves too. To say it has made his birthday special is an understatement.... We've never seen so much excitement on our boys face, he is infatuated with the whole fire brigade. Bless him. Honestly, I do not think any thanks we give will ever show our gratitude for allowing our family into your station and to be made to feel welcome into your big family, May we take this opportunity to show our appreciation and wish all in the service a safe service. Many thanks for keeping us all safe you all do an amazing job. Please find attached pictures from today and feel free to use them for any purpose that will help your services.. He has fallen asleep on the way home as all the excitement has tired him out.

I just wanted to congratulate the Humberside Fire & Rescue team at Bransholme Station for their fast response. Within two minutes of ringing 999, the crew was at the scene and had put the fire out. I know this wasn't much and was only a small fire, but the quick response was so impressive and prevented the fire getting any larger. Thankyou to you all for your hard work and effort in the area, especially on the night when all the fires are being set by youths. I myself hope to become a firefighter soon, and am impressed at the response times and hard work of the service in my area.

Thank you to Central White Watch. My disabled wife and I thank them for their swift attendance, the team were courteous and thorough.

Thank you to all those who attended an incident in Moody Lane. I would like to say thank you to Peaks Lane Fire Station for all their best efforts in helping my dad who unfortunately passed away.

I just wanted to say thank you again for letting my little boy climb into an engine and try on a helmet.

Dove House Hospice sent a lovely card to say thank you for a donation. "Your thoughtful contribution is greatly appreciated and helps us make a big difference in the local community."

A gentleman passed on his thanks to Clough Road Blue Watch, who assisted him when visiting a local florist.
