Due to the work Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service are involved with on a day to day basis, we have close working relationships with the media (press, online, TV and radio).

We regularly issue News Releases and Media Opportunities to the local, regional and national media to help share news with the general public and interested partners. If you want to keep up to date with news from across the Service this is the place for you.

On this page, you will find a selection of our latest News Releases and Media Opportunities along with any associated images that we have. You are welcome to use these to create articles for your media outlet but please credit Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service if using any images provided.

Also, on this page you will find a searchable archive of past News Releases and Media Opportunities that are not shown in the current list.

If you have any questions about news releases and media opportunities or you require more information, please don’t hesitate to contact a member of the Corporate Communications team via contact us.

If you are a member of the local media and would like automatic notifications of incidents, please subscribe to our service on Latest Incidents.
