Firefighter strike

Take Extra Care

The Fire Brigades Union has announced a four day period of strike action starting at 1800 hrs this Friday (October 31) and continuing until 1800 hrs on November 4.

This will be the fire service's toughest test to date as it coincides with our busiest time of year - the bonfire season.
