Save Wrexham's fire engine


North Wales Fire and Rescue Authority is proposing to cut one of Wrexham's two whole-time fire engines with the loss of 24 firefighters. Wrexham is the largest conurbation in the North, it has a huge industrial estate and the second largest prison in Europe along with a high number of vulnerable people and deprived communities.

These additional pressures will lead to a lack of cover for area, potentially endangering life and putting property at risk. We support enhanced cover for other parts of north Wales but not at the expense of halving the numbers of firefighters available in Wrexham. 

We, the undersigned, call on the North Wales Fire and Rescue Authority not to cut the Wrexham fire appliance and 24 firefighters' jobs.

    KEEP the Fire Engine and 24 staff – these men and women are our emergency services that we should be proud of and want to keep – regardless. An important life or death serive shhould not even be thought of to cut.

    The fire fighters are an integral part of all sciociety and are all highly trained with specialist skills that cannot be covered by part time or reserve personnel without the adequate training for the job in hand.

    Whether in North Wales or any where else.

    Also some fire fighters are specifically trained for aerial ladders, chemical spillage, gas,electric, or environmental emergencies, as well as house fire’s car accidents and cats up the tree ? thus if they or some of them where removed “especially the highly skilled or full time experienced staff” that would create a big problem when assessing an emergency and looking at what staff are available to attend.

    And in the case of Wrexham it has i think the largest industrial estate in Wales plus not to forget the Hospital, Erddig park and the Moors bearing in mind "global warming "

    If there was ever a major incident we would struggle now with two full time crew never mind in the future. SO PLEASE LEAVE ALONE.
