Warwickshire Fire Crews Hit Out Over Cuts Secrecy

WARWICKSHIRE, ENGLAND--(Marketwire - July 31, 2009) - Warwickshire County Council's Cabinet yesterday agreed proposals for drastic changes to Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service. These proposals were discussed behind closed doors and we find it astonishing that as a public service funded by public money it is being dealt with confidentially.

As of yet the FBU have not had firm confirmation of what these proposals contain. However there is speculation that there maybe cuts of up to 100 retained posts and several station closures.

When these proposals are finally made known to the FBU we will study them and make an appropriate response. The FBU will vehemently oppose any cuts on frontline services that could impinge on public and firefighter safety.
