Have your say on the future of fire service

Have your say

A consultation on proposals to update the way Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue delivers services has been launched.

And there’s a number of ways you can have your say, including visiting Skegness Fire Station on Tuesday, December 16, at 7pm.

In brief, the proposals are around:

l Potential savings options to meet anticipated budget reductions.

l Introducing an alternative crewing arrangement on some retained duty system fire stations so that fire engines with fewer than four firefighters can attend certain incidents.

l Revising the way in which the response standard to house fires and road accidents is presented.

l Increasing the number of fire stations that provide a co-responder service for medical emergencies.

l Setting the service priorities for 2015/16.

The full details can be found in the Integrated Risk Management Planning consultation document 2015/16, available on Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue’s website www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/lfr, where people can also respond to the consultation, which closes on February 6.
