Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service Supports Dignity Action Day 2017

31/Jan/2017

Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service (DFRS) is pledging it’s support to Dignity Action Day which is taking place on 1 February 2017, aiming to give everyone the opportunity to contribute to upholding people’s rights to dignity and provide a truly memorable day for people receiving care. 

As part of DFRS’s commitment to the health and wellbeing of it’s communities, the Service fully supports Dignity Action Day which aims to ensure potentially vulnerable people are given choice, control and a sense of purpose in their daily lives. 

Community Safety Officers will be attending a special ‘Derby Dignity Day’ event being held by Home Support Services at Ascot Drive in Derby. The event aims to bring together local care organisations, people who use services and staff in front line care, so that they can share information, advice and guidance.  The event will also include tea, coffee and cakes, along with other activities including, stalls, music and a charity raffle.  All proceeds will go to Macmillan Cancer Support in Derby. 

Firefighters from Kingsway Fire Station will also be visiting a local independent living complex, spending an afternoon with residents offering home fire safety advice and information. 

Head of Prevention and Inclusion Davinder Johal said:  “Every day our firefighters work closely with vulnerable members of our communities; those who are more likely to have a fire in the home and those that are of risk of injury, or worse, as a result of that fire.  

“Dignity Action Day gives us a chance to get involved, showing our continued support in highlighting a more respectful way of behaving towards vulnerable people, something which is in line with our own Service core values.”
