About this website during Coronvirus
This website is not one that is used by local agencies during response. However, it does provide information about COVID-19 (see latest blog post). It is important to signpost you to the most appropriate sources of information:
To everyone across Wiltshire and Swindon, it’s a simple message
STAY ALERT, CONTROL THE VIRUS, SAVE LIVES.
The most important action we can all take across the county, in fighting the spread of coronavirus, is to stay alert, in order to control the virus and save lives.
All partners across Wiltshire and Swindon are working together to take all the necessary steps to slow the spread of the virus and to ensure we are well prepared for increases in cases across the county. NHS services across the area are ready to help minimise the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and deal with an upturn in patient numbers caused by the outbreak.
Staff across councils, NHS services, police, fire and voluntary and community sector organisations are all working extremely hard to make sure we can continue to deliver our essential services and support the most vulnerable in our communities.
National Volunteers Week – 1st – 7th June 2020
Wiltshire & Swindon LRF wants to say a huge thank you to all volunteers who work across our area to support agencies, help the vulnerable and keep people safe. Their work has never been more important than during the current COVID-19 emergency.
*** PPE - call for action ***
Wiltshire & Swindon LRF is working with fellow responders across the South West and are grateful to businesses and others for their support in providing essential PPE supplies. PPE continues to present a huge challenge, and a national request is being made of organisations or others able to help with making PPE such as visors and gowns for our frontline workers.
