Welcome to the new online home of Northumberland Fire & Rescue
At Northumberland Fire and Rescue, our role is simple regardless of what each of us does - 'Making Northumberland Safer'. It means shaping everything we do to ensure we're able to protect our communities, our visitors, our environment, our infrastructure and our heritage. This new website is a really important part of how we're going to make sure we achieve that goal.
The website is full of indispensable but easy to access safety information and practical guidance. It has been developed to make sure that visitors to the site will be able to understand more about what we do, why we do it and what our plans for the future are. As well as the information to keep you safe, we want you to be kept up to date with what is happening so you'll find news and articles on what your fire and rescue service is delivering right across Northumberland.
I hope you like the look, feel and content of the new website, but even more importantly, I really hope it provides the tools and content you need to keep your family and loved ones safe. I'd also love to think that it may even inspire people to consider joining our fantastic #TeamNFRS fire family and become part of a service that is committed to providing a service which is efficient and effective, reduces the risk of harm to our communities and improves the safety of all those we are here to serve.

Keeping you safe
Stay safe on bonfire night
Please don’t light bonfires or set off fireworks this year in your back garden, yard or street. There are plenty of organised displays to attend. These are much safer, they protect you and us.
Always follow the firework code
Remember fireworks are explosives and extremely dangerous so remember:
Alcohol and fireworks do not mix
Always supervise children around fireworks
Keep behind safety cordons in the appropriate area
Keep pets indoors
