London fire service cuts 'consultation'

The public consultation exercise has begun on proposals by the commissioner of the London Fire Brigade, Ron Dobson, supported by the mayor of London, Boris Johnson, to close 12 fire stations, remove 18 engines and slash 520 frontline firefighter posts.

The consultation runs for 12 weeks, concluding on 18 May.

According to the commissioner's own predictions, the cuts would lead to 4.7 million Londoners across 20 boroughs waiting longer for a fire engine.

The FBU is encouraging firefighters and members of the public to make their views known by taking part in the consultation exercise. This can be done by clicking on the link below.
