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. A new agreement has been reached between the firefighters` union (FBU) and the employers of firefighters, which allows firefighters to assist in the implementation of COVID 19 vaccines in the UK. The discussions provided an overview of the lessons learned and the experience gained over the past two months. In addition, new applications from the FBU were submitted and required further review as part of the tripartite agreement. The work is now under the jurisdiction of the National Joint Council, where the FBU and national employers negotiate wages and conditions, the normal body of national industrial agreements in the fire and rescue services. The 14 previously agreed activities are covered by the new agreement. FIREFIGHTERS are ready to assist in the implementation of COVID-19 vaccines in the UK following an agreement between the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) – the union representing British firefighters and emergency firefighters – and national fire and rescue workers. 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. “The agreement was initially concluded in March, with a number of new activities, with covid-19 resulting in new requirements. The NFCC was convinced that firefighters could help and that they wanted to play a key, if not important, role in helping to meet the challenges of the pandemic.

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 light conduct Ambulance transport, driving lessons, face masks for the NHS and front-line medical personnel, provision of PPE and other medical supplies, assistance to emergency services for travel and assistance to patients/ambulances, Congress notes that the agreement has limited 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. It was also agreed that joint work to review risk assessments will be carried out with the aim of extending the agreement to that date of 26 August. The Congress notes that the response of firefighters and emergency services to the Covid 19 pandemic was managed in a unique way by the British tripartite agreement between the FBU, national employers of firefighters and the Chief Fire Brigade (NFCC). 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. During the multi-day discussions, it was agreed that firefighters would remain at the centre of the response to COVID-19 and continue to carry out agreed activities.
