920 vaccines, 1586 hours and 2 million items of PPE and medical supplies delivered
Those are the incredible figures that members of HFRS have so far achieved in supporting the national effort against COVID-19.
Over the last month, our staff have been supporting City Health Care Partnership (CHCP) with the vaccine rollout at the mass vaccination centre in Hull’s City Hall. Staff from various roles and sections across the Service have volunteered to play a part in the continued fight against COVID-19. Most recently, more members of staff have helped Safecare Network with the setup of a mass vaccination centre at The Baths Hall in the heart of Scunthorpe, which is due to open from 19 March.
2 million pieces of PPE
Our On-Call Firefighters at Howden Fire Station have distributed an incredible two million items of PPE and medical supplies to healthcare partners. Set up at the beginning of the first lockdown to support the Local Resilience Forum (multi-agency group involving heads of service in the healthcare, local government and emergency services sector) was formed to specifically look after the large task of handling all the PPE for the Humber region. Join us in saying a huge well done to all those involved in the fight against COVID-19.
