Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service would like to
reassure our communities following the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease.
The Service is closely monitoring all guidance and advice
issued by the UK Government and Public Health Wales in relation to Coronavirus
The Service has set up a Critical Incident Team, which is
meeting on a daily basis to ensure that we are in the best possible position to
evaluate all the information being forwarded.
The continued effective functioning of the Service and the
welfare of front-line operational and support staff is a priority and the
Service, consistent with Welsh Government advice, has moved to the Delay phase.
As a result, we are now prioritising our front-line operational
response capability, and scaling back some non-statutory services. Those who
are affected by this will be contacted shortly to ensure that, where possible, suitable
alternative work is found.
We want to reassure you that in an emergency, should you
need the Fire and Rescue Service we will still respond immediately.
We would also like to remind the public to ensure they follow
all guidance issued by the UK Government and Public Health Wales in relation to
Coronavirus (COVID-19) and ensure that they take all the necessary home safety
advice available on our website.
Thank you all for your understanding and continued support
during these unprecedented challenging uncertainties.
