Thank you for taking extra care today

Wed 25 Sep, 2013

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

Firefighters attended just two incidents between 12 noon and 4pm, both of which were false alarms.

Chief Operating Officer Jason Thelwell said: “We were able to provide the same level of cover today as on a normal day, and your vigilance led to a significantly reduced demand for our services.

“Fire safety and road safety messages don’t just apply during a strike – they are sound advice all year round, so we hope everyone will continue to follow our common-sense advice and reduce the risk of being involved in an emergency.”
