Here in Greater Manchester alone 445 people were killed or seriously injured on the roads in 2020. 67 of these were fatal incidents. (Data taken from TFGM Casualty Dashboard, please note this includes all road users.)
Firefighters from Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) attend Road Traffic Collisions (RTCs) whenever someone is trapped in a vehicle, or when they are required to help make the area safe or put out a vehicle fire.
We now rescue more people from RTCs than we do from fires - so we are keen to work with our partners to do all we can to keep people safe on our roads.
On this page we have provided you with links to information about the risks associated with driving and how to avoid them.
