Lincolnshire firefighters step up response during coronavirus so they can deliver food and drive ambulances
A national agreement has been made so firefighters can deliver food and medicines, drive ambulances, and retrieve dead bodies during the coronavirus outbreak.
Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue already work closely with partners to help in communities, with many firefighters carrying out extended duties, assisting ambulance service at a range of medical emergencies. Those taking part will be given additional training and protective equipment.
The new approach will initially be for two months but can be extended if necessary.
