Service signs up to Mind's Blue Light Pledge Essex County Fire and Rescue Service has signed Minds Blue Light Pledge as part of a scheme to help create a healthier workplace which puts staff wellbeing first. By signing the pledge the Service is demonstrating a commitment to improve the mental wellbeing of Service employees. The scheme sees emergency services and specialist partner agencies working together to share ideas and schemes which will help improve mental health in the workplace. The singing took place as a special employee wellbeing event held at the Services Kelvedon Park headquarters on Friday October 23. The event brought together mental health and wellbeing speakers hosting staff workshops and a health market place with stalls from Mind, local healthcare providers, the Fire Fighters Charity, Women in the Fire Service, the Fire Brigades Union as well as the Services fitness, training and human resources teams. Acting Chief Fire Officer Adam Eckley said: Statistics show that one in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem in any given year. Thats a powerful statistic in its own right. Even closer to home is the research which shows that an estimated quarter of a million people who work in the emergency services are more at risk of experiencing a mental health problem. Our primary role in leading the way to a safer Essex is to help build communities where people feel safer at home and at work.What precisely is a fire door?. In basic terms, it's a door that will prevent a fire from a fire spreading to other parts of the building. Coupled with other measures such as smoke alarms it should permit the occupants to escape safely.

"The precious miracle that was given to us." Callens says her Kelci Lewis was born premature and spent six weeks on a heart monitor. She fought until she was healthy enough to survive. "She grew up to this little bitty precious angel and now this," Callens said. "It hurts." Candles were lit and everyone held balloons to remember Kelci. A child who left quite an impression during her short life. "How happy she was," Callens said. "How she used to get up in the morning and just be running around the house. Right now, it's so hard. When my daughter would call me in the morning I'm so used to hearing my grand baby in the background." On Sunday, Oct. 11, police say her mother found her unresponsive in a home on 2nd Avenue South. Lt. Sean Edwards says her death was ruled a homicide.

Firefighters from both Tyne and Wear and Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Services set up the gruelling StrongArm Challenge in memory of former Tyne and Wear firefighter Peter Metcalfe, who died in 2012 aged 35. The first StrongArm took place in Scotland in 2013 and last year the original team, along with several new faces, returned for a new challenge in the Lake District. On consecutive days they swam eight miles in Ullswater, completed a mountain triathlon and took part in the Total Warrior 10-mile assault course, carrying a paraplegic team member, before cycling 100 miles home. So far they have raised about 60,000 for the national Firefighters Charity and the Make a Wish Foundation. The Firefighters Charity, which provides support and rehabilitation services, named the StrongArm Challenge as its Team of the Year at the annual Spirit of Fire Awards in London on Friday. (October 2) The award was presented by BBC newsreader Nicholas Owen. Watch Manager Paul Thompson, Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service, said: When our colleague and dear friend Peter Metcalfe tragically lost his life suddenly to stomach cancer, we wanted to create a very special event to keep his spirit alive and raise funds in his memory. "Thanks to all the organisational work by people like Carl Stephenson and Peter's brother, Warren, it has been a bigger success than we could have wished for. And winning the Spirit of Fire award is a great honour for everyone involved." Warren Metcalfe, who has taken part in and helped to organise the challenge events, is a firefighter with County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service.

"Basically the price of a night on the town!"
"I'd love to help kickstart continued development! And 0 EUR/month really does make fiscal sense too... maybe I'll even get a shirt?" (there will be limited edition shirts for two and other goodies for each supporter as soon as we sold the 200)
