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. If you think you may be able to assist please use the following link to check the required specifications and register your offer here.
