Zero-tolerance to anti-social behaviour towards Firefighters

Published on Tuesday 8 March 2022

On Friday 25 February Firefighters from Shirebrook were responding to a fire in the open on Sookholme Road, Shirebrook when they were approached by a large group of youths who began verbally abusing the crew and throwing items at them.


Area Manager Paul Moreland said: “The Service is appalled that Firefighters from Shirebrook fire station were attacked while responding to a fire in the open on Friday evening. The crew themselves posted on social media that this behaviour isn’t acceptable in any way, shape or form and the Service wholeheartedly supports this view. 

“Our Firefighters are members of the community who go above and beyond to protect the communities they serve, and like all emergency responders, they should be able to do this safe from harm and attack.

“Thankfully, this type of incident is extremely rare in Derbyshire, and it is only a tiny minority of people would ever consider acting in such an irresponsible and aggressive way.

“We will continue to work with our police colleagues as they continue to investigate this attack and ensure those responsible are brought to justice.”

Anyone with information about this incident should contact Derbyshire police, quoting reference 882 of 25 February.
