Thank you for your vigilance this evening

Fri 1 Nov, 2013

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

Firefighters attended four incidents between 6.30pm and 11pm - a bonfire, a false alarm and two road traffic collisions.

Chief Operating Officer Jason Thelwell said: “We had a good contingency plan in place, and public vigilance led to a low number of 999 calls."

The second of the two strikes announced last week by the Fire Brigades Union takes place from 6am to 8am on Monday 4 November. Click here to see some tips for staying safe at home, at work and on the roads.
