In addition, new applications from the FBU were submitted and required further review as part of the tripartite agreement. NFCC President Roy Wilsher told Fire Safety Matters: “This agreement demonstrates the willingness, will and ability of fire and rescue personnel to contribute to the response to COVID-19 by using their broad range of skills and expertise to help those who need it most. The agreement was initially concluded in March with a number of new activities, with covid-19 resulting in new requirements. The NFCC was absolutely convinced that firefighters and emergency services could assist in the fight against the pandemic and, just as importantly, play a key role in supporting the challenges it identified. Congress notes that the agreement has minimized risk assessments and the role of security personnel in preventing the risks of all work done. This has resulted in reduced absenteeism and firefighter infections. Among the other 14 areas of work in the tripartite agreement are the installation of single-use facial shields for the NHS and staff on the care work front. packaging/reconditioning of food for vulnerable people, transferring patients in and out of thought, helps to take samples for COVID-19 antigen tests, Non-blue Ambulance Transport Light Conduct, driving courses, face masks for the NHS and front-line medical personnel, provision of EPI and other medical supplies, assistance to emergency services for travel and assistance to patients/ambulances, Multi-day interviews have reached an agreement that firefighters and emergency services remain at the heart of COVID-19`s ongoing response and will continue to carry out specific activities. This means that activities related to COVID-19, such as helping nursing homes, assisting deraseels during tests, conducting ambulances, creating faces for NHS/clinical staff and helping the most vulnerable will continue until at least the end of July. Roy Wilsher, President of the NFCC, said: “This agreement demonstrates the willingness, willingness and willingness of firefighters to play their part in responding to COVID-19 by using their wide range of skills and expertise to help those who need it most. The tripartite agreement, first signed on March 23 and then expanded, allowed firefighters to support local resilience forums, ambulance trusts, hospitals and other organizations with vital work.
During the several-day discussions, it was agreed that firefighters would remain at the centre of the response to COVID-19 and would continue to carry out agreed activities. The agreement was reached between the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC), the National Employer and the Fire Brigades Union (FBU). COVID-19 has an impact on all emergency services. On March 26, 2020, the National Employer Firefighters, the Firefighters Union and the National Fire Chiefs Council reached an agreement that, in collaboration with the Joint National Council on the necessary temporary changes to trade conditions, resulted in 14 additional work zones for firefighters and emergency services to date to meet the challenges of the Covid 19 crisis.
