Firefighter Seriously Injured In Road Traffic Collision

At 16.43 hours on Tuesday 21 March 2023 a Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service fire engine was involved in a road traffic collision on Hassop Road, Hassop, Derbyshire while returning from an incident. No other vehicle was involved in the collision.  

A helimed helicopter, police and DFRS officers were mobilised to support the response to the incident.  

Five firefighters were travelling on the fire engine at the time of the collision. One female firefighter had to be extricated from the fire engine due to the extent of her injuries and immediately taken by helicopter to hospital. The remaining four crew are believed to have sustained minor injuries.  

The Service is working with our partners at Derbyshire Constabulary to understand the circumstances surrounding the incident, however at this time the welfare of our firefighters involved in the incident, their families, and those impacted remains our highest priority.
