In April 2020 it was confirmed to the Fire Industry Association that within reason, personnel conducting vital fire protection roles are Critical Workers. The letter from the Rt Hon James Brokenshire MP Minister of State for Security at the Home Office is attached. Although this was received a while ago now this document it is still as important now as it was then if you travel and are challenged by customers or the authorities.
We recommend that you print the Home Office letter attached and carry it whenever on appropriate business travel along with an up to date general Covid-19 risk assessment document.
