Reading Well for teens launches in City’s libraries

A new ‘Reading Well’ collection of books and resources for teenagers launched in public libraries across England and Wales on World Mental Health Day (10 October 2022).

After helping to establish vaccination centres in the previous year, in 2021-22 the service was proud to continue supporting local NHS services to deliver the vaccination programme.

Chief Fire Officer, Justin Johnston, said: “Over the course of the pandemic, we have helped to deliver approximately 500,000 vaccinations, with around 125,000 vaccines administered by our staff.

“This vital work was carried out alongside attending almost 19,000 emergency incidents and conducting over 17,600 home fire safety checks, as well as delivering many other services across the county.

“Towards the end of last year, the service was inspected by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services. The inspection found that Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service is performing exceptionally well and recognised that we are ‘outstanding’ for promoting values and culture.

“I am incredibly proud of these achievements which reflect the efforts of all our people and demonstrate that we continue to be one of the best equipped, best trained and most professional fire and rescue services in the country.”
