Support the Fire Service

It is good that people power is having some impact on the decision-makers at County Hall. It is to be welcomed that the Council’s Executive plan to recommend an increase in the budget for the Cornish Fire Service and to continue 24 hour cover from Camborne Fire Station.

This would not have happened if it had not been for the widespread anger of communities throughout Cornwall, the petitions, the marches and demonstrations.

The campaign needs to continue however and we must carry on showing our support for the fire-fighters, their unions and in retaining 24 hour cover at Falmouth.

Pictured above are MK councillors recently handing in over 2,000 petition forms opposing the fire cuts proposed by the Lib Dems.
