Fire and Rescue Service Community Asset Register (CAR)
This is a register of volunteers who have a particular asset
or skill which they feel could be used to support emergency
services and responders at an incident.
Examples include someone with a boat who could be called in
times of flooding to assist evacuate people from houses to a
place of safety. Similarly someone with a 4X4 may be used in
times of severe snow to transport vulnerable people to a community
Further information about the CAR can be found on the link below:
Unfortunately, it is impossible to gauge how often a volunteer
will be requested.
Mobilisations can be determined by severe weather, a specific
type of asset/skill required for the incident, the emergency
services availability and resources in the area and the location
of the volunteer.
It must be stressed that even when someone has registered, they
are under no obligation to mobilise when they are called by
the Operations Control centre.
For anyone to register an interest and request a form please
and a registration form will be sent to be completed
along with guidelines on how to complete the registration process.
Or use this email address to contact CAR directly.

any gardening activities, or learn about growing plants, fruit
and vegetables in an environmentally friendly way. Activities
can include potting and pricking out seedlings, weeding, tying
