Thank you for taking care during strike

Mon 4 Nov, 2013

Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service would like to thank the public for taking extra care during this morning’s period of industrial action.

It was the second of the two strikes announced in October by the Fire Brigades Union, which is in dispute with the Government over pensions.

Firefighters were not called to any incidents between 6am and 8am.

Chief Operating Officer Jason Thelwell said: “During periods of industrial action, we have good contingency plans in place so that we can continue to respond to emergencies. Once again, the public's vigilance has been much appreciated."
