British Red Cross fire and emergency response service
The Red Cross responds to hundreds of emergencies in the UK every year and supports the emergency services in various ways across the country.
Its fully trained volunteers are always on hand to give practical help and emotional support to those in need. They provide vital assistance following major incidents, such as floods, and more personal emergencies, like transport accidents and house fires.
The Red Cross work in partnership with the emergency services and local authorities, to support their work in responding to crisis.
In Tayside, the Red Cross runs a Fire and Emergency and Support Service (FESS) which helps people cope in the aftermath of fires, floods, evacuations and other emergencies, providing practical help, advice and comfort.
