We’re writing to say a huge thank you for all your support in our fight to #RescueSuffolkFire.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service know that the cuts they’ve enforced are putting firefighters’ and residents’ lives at risk. They’ve allowed dangerous practices like riding only three firefighters on a fire engine to go ahead – not enough to make rescues. Suffolk has seen the largest percentage cut of firefighters and residents have the longest waiting times for a fire engine in the Eastern region.
We’ve warned Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service that firefighters are already struggling to protect the public. We’ve told them that the cuts have gone too far. Yet they still aren’t listening to us.
We won’t stand idly by while Suffolk firefighters’ and residents’ lives are put at risk. So we have no choice but to protest.
Will you join us and stand up to the people who are willing to gamble firefighters’ and residents’ lives?
This issue means a lot to us and we really appreciate your support. Can you go one step further and share this event with your friends and family?
Posting something on Facebook and Twitter will only take a second, but will mean hundreds of people see the protest and can join our fight.
Thank you for standing with us and we hope to see you at the protest.
