Winter 2018

On behalf of Suffolk Resilience Forum (SRF) partners, I would like to offer my sincere thanks for the 4x4 vehicle support provided during the recent period of heavy snowfall. I understand that volunteers worked very long hours in challenging conditions to assist the statutory responders and Suffolk communities.
Within the SRF it has long been recognised that Suffolk Voluntary Organisation Group (SVOG)is an integral element of the multi-agency response & recovery to widespread, protracted emergencies. It is very reassuring to know that trained, experienced. SVOG member organisations and other local authorities can be called upon at short notice to deliver this support/mutual aid across the county.
Numerous comments from statutory responders about the 'can do' attitude of the 4x4 vehicle drivers over a prolonged response period have been received, and the limited trained 4x4 resources across the county contributed greatly to the statutory response.

Please convey my thanks to individual drivers.

Yours sincerely

Mark Hardingham
Chief Fire Officer and
Director of Fire and Safety
