North Kensington fire

Transparent EEAST crest

As you will be aware, in the early hours of this morning a Major Incident was declared in London following a very large fire in North Kensington.

There has been a significant number of casualties and a number of likely deaths. Our thoughts are with all those involved – the public, local residents and all those responding to the incident., especially our friends and colleagues at London Ambulance Service (LAS).

We were contacted in the early hours for mutual aid and we have a Gold team actively engaged. We have been asked by LAS to provide mutual aid to emergency calls around the border areas with London, along with SCAS and SECAMB. Our HART teams are stood up on request to support if required as well.

I want to thank all our staff who have been, and continue to be, involved in our response to support this tragic event. Our chaplaincy team have also offered their thoughts and prayers which I have passed on to colleagues in London.
