Well done to the professionalism of the fire crews.

Such a shame that very soon (if the council / fire authority get their own way), this one single fire would be enough to wipe out the ability to respond to anything else.

They believe that just four fire engines will be enough to deal with EVERY incident in the city.
They also want to close other stations in the county, which would leave an already stretched service, completely unable to cope.

It's YOUR fire service, and YOUR life they are risking.
