Derbyshire And Nottinghamshire Fire And Rescue Services To Celebrate International Control Room Week

18/Oct/2019

From 21-27 October 2019, both Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Services will celebrate the work of its control room staff as part of International Control Room Week.

The now joint emergency call control room, based at Derbyshire’s Ascot Drive Community Fire Station houses control staff that handle 999 calls across both counties since the Joint Control Project went live earlier this year.

International Control Room Week gears up for its second year following a hugely successful inaugural week this time last year, where thousands of control room staff joined together in an extraordinary celebration of their work as the unseen frontline of the emergency services.

Our Control staff can deal with traumatic and stressful situations on a daily basis and both Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Services will be attempting to raise public awareness of their life-saving and life-changing work by celebrating their staff throughout the week.

Station Manager for Control, Carly Pointon said, “Last year’s overwhelming support demonstrates just how important it is to celebrate the amazing work of Control Room staff and why they should get the recognition they richly deserve.

“Members from across both Services have highlighted just how important Control is to ensuring operations run as smoothly as possible and it would be great for us to promote all of what we do to help raise awareness to the public.”

Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Services and Control itself will be posting throughout the week on social media. You can stay up to date with everything that’s happening by following us:
