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.

    Halving the capacity to protect such a large conurbation with the loss of such a high number of trained professionals is verging on the ridiculous

    Wow, Fire fighters given a pay rise with no conditions then, here come the conditions. Millions going to be spent on a training facility similar to Cheshire’s is it necessary. Come on North Wales fire Service Wrexham is an up and coming City and you are seriously considering providing it with only one full time engine. If you want to make cuts take a look at your management structure.
