Don't axe our firefighters
- Fire Service
- United Kingdom
‘LIFE-THREATENING’ plans to cut the jobs of eight full-time staff who man South Devon’s only hydraulic firefighting platform have been condemned by MPs and hoteliers as well as firefighters and their officers.
Firefighters say the round of cuts, aimed at saving the newly-formed Devon and Somerset service £1million, will put lives at risk and substantially reduce their ability to tackle major high-building incidents quickly and efficiently with its ‘Bronto’ appliance.
We, the undersigned, request the fire service not to cut jobs for South Devon's only hydraulic firefighting platform.
