Fire: Firefighters urge caution to prevent wildfires this summer

Written by RSS Poster Norfolk Fire Service

Firefighters urge caution to prevent wildfires this summer

Every year, fire destroys thousands of acres of countryside and wildlife habitats across the UK and although some are started deliberately most of them are due to carelessness.

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service attend an average of 225 fires per year in woodland, heath land, fields etc. Dry weather has a significant impact on the likelihood, severity and spread of these fires.

In recent years there have been six incidents of this type requiring in excess of ten fire appliances to attend. Two of these incidents lasted for over two days. Last year a fire in woodland at Fritton utilised sixty fire engines and special appliances over two days.

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service are reminding everyone to take particular care not only during this current dry spell but throughout the year to help reduce the unnecessary attendance of the Service at preventable fires which can quickly become large and protracted incidents given the current...

http://www.theyworkforyou.com/lords/?id=2014-07-22a.1071.0

Pretender to the throne?













 

My Lords, with the leave of the House I will now repeat a Statement on police reform that was given earlier today in the House of Commonsby my right honourable friend Theresa May, the Home Secretary. The Statementis as follows.

“With permission, Mr Speaker, I would like to make a statement about our ongoing work to ensure the highest standards of integrity in the police. I have always been clear that I believe the vast majorityof police officers in this country do their job honestly, and with integrity. They fight crime in our villages, towns and cities. They deal with dangerous criminals, strive to protect the vulnerable, keep our streets safe and have shown that they can cut crime even as we cut spending. Under this Government, crime is down by more than 10% since the election, proving that it is possible to do more with less. But as I have said before,...

Police: Fairer outsourcing to SMEs

Written by RSS Poster A Just Future: Fair for All
There is an article in this morning's Independent heralding the arrival of Piers Linney (BBC Dragon) to the Cabinet Office's SME Panel. You can read the article here. As the Indie's comment system seems a bit restrictive, here is the full comment that I wanted to post!
For readers' information: the Cabinet Office SME panel has been meeting for over 3 years and welcomed Piers to his first meeting last week. The Panel has been working with the Cabinet Office on a suite of interventions designed to ensure a level playing field for government procurement. 
If you search on > sme panel cabinet < a number of useful links will pop up. 
Panel members represent the breadth of suppliers to government and have given their time freely in support of the bold objective to introduce the hyper value for money, innovation and boost to British enterprise that only SME's can bring.
