Ready Willing and Able
Working alongside Derbyshire County Council, Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service have been supporting those most vulnerable in our communities by delivering prescriptions.
These prescriptions are essential for the most vulnerable in our communities, the very people who have been told to stay at home and shield themselves from the virus.
A lot of these vulnerable people have no one to talk to and no one who can fetch and deliver vital medicines to them - this is where we step in.
As well as delivering prescriptions, our extra support now includes; a befriending service, providing regular check-ins and a friendly voice at the end of the phone as well as EMAS support, with the driving of emergency vehicles, collection and safe handling of patients.

The community thanking our keyworkers
Year 2 children at Carlyle Infant & Nursery Academy
The Service has received some thank you cards from year 2 children at Carlyle Infant & Nursery Academy, in Littleover. They wanted to thank all staff to say how proud they are of all of our keyworkers, helping to keep the country safe, healthy and happy.
Pictured are the lovely cards and messages sent in by the children. The staff and children say thank you to all!
Treats from a young girl called Lexi
A little girl called Lexi, 9 years old from Newbold, rang our door bell and dropped off 10 sandwich bags full of goodies and treats with a picture of the DFRS badge and a note saying "Thank you for looking after us!" We thought it was really thoughtful and it really brightened our day!!
