Reduce the risk of an emergency by taking extra care

Tue 17 Sep, 2013


With today’s announcement of a strike by firefighters from 12 noon to 4pm on Wednesday 25 September, Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service is issuing this advice to help people avoid having a fire or other emergency.

Jason Thelwell, Chief Operating Officer, said: “A considerable amount of work has gone on behind the scenes to make sure we can continue to provide cover in Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes in the event of industrial action.

“We will obviously prioritise emergency calls where lives are at risk, and we will continue to provide as much information as possible to help people avoid having a fire or other emergency – not just during strike periods, but all year round.”
