An elderly woman was rescued from a house fire in Sneinton by her neighbour.

The blaze has been deemed as accidental following an investigation yesterday.

Firefighters from London Road and Carlton Fire Station attended the incident around 8:30AM yesterday morning (Monday 17 January 2022).

Upon arrival, the woman was outside her property with a neighbour, who had gone into the house to rescue her before emergency services had arrived. He had been alerted to the fire after seeing smoke coming out of the house. Other neighbours were alerted to the smoke percolating into their properties by their smoke alarms.

The woman is now being treated for smoke inhalation.

Fire Investigator and Watch Manager, Tim Marston, said: "Even though we encourage people to follow our 'get out, stay out and call 999' advice, this brave act from the neighbour prevented the woman's injuries from being significantly worse.

"This incident just shows how important it is to have working smoke alarms in your property. We ask that every property has at least one smoke alarm on each floor and that they are tested regularly.

"It is also important that people have an escape plan and know in advance what to do if a fire occurs. Everyone within the household, or place of work, should know what to do as part of this plan.

Local firefighters will be around Sneinton in the coming days to reassure the community and to provide important fire safety advice, which will include what to do if a fire occurs and how to formulate an escape plan.

"We are supporting the lady and her family as much as we can during this difficult time, and we wish her a speedy recovery."

On Friday 26 November 2021, West Bridgford Red Watch held their latest CPR and defibrillator refresher session for football coaches and volunteers at West Bridgford Colts football club ๐Ÿšจโšฝ๏ธ

The crew is now offering sessions to other community groups, sports clubs and parents in the West Bridgford area.

Watch Manager Martin Hickling said: "these sessions provide an essential opportunity to practise potentially life-saving CPR.

"Every Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service station has a defibrillator accessible to nearby members of the public. If you see someone experiencing a suspected sudden cardiac arrest, call 999 immediately and follow telephone instructions until East Midlands Ambulance Service arrive. You might be instructed to use a defibrillator over the phone.

"We would encourage anyone to come down and learn more."

A man has been jailed after setting fire to his flat and then assaulting emergency workers who came to help him.

Reuben Woolley was in his first storey flat in Helston Drive, Bilborough, when emergency services went in to tackle the fire, which had been reported by a concerned member of the public.

Firefighters used a ladder to gain entry through the window and as they got inside the address, Woolley hit one of them across his helmet with a metal bar, knocking him to the ground. He got up only to be met by more aggression from the 38-year-old, who delivered a second blow with the metal bar, causing the firefighter to fall onto his breathing equipment and injuring his shoulders and back.

Woolley was able to be separated into another room and police were called to the scene whilst he was detained. He was subsequently arrested and taken to the Queen's Medical Centre to be checked over whilst he was under arrest.

Fire crews were quickly able to contain and put out the fire following the incident on Sunday 20 December 2020.

Once in at the Bridewell Custody suite, Woolley also spat at two detention officers.

Reuben Woolley appeared at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday (7 January 2021) charged with arson, causing actual bodily harm and two counts of assaulting an emergency worker.

He was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison.

This morning crews from Stockhill, Arnold and Highfields took part in a training exercise at the Nottingham Ice Arena #ExerciseBolero โ›ธ

In the scenario, two protestors secured themselves to the gantry above the ice rink. One casualty suffered a suspected cardiac arrest.

Crews worked with line rescue equipment and a basket stretcher to free the individuals from the gantry and bring the casualty safely down.

We perform exercises like this so that we can be prepared for a real emergency #notjustfires
