Fire Brigade Visit

Hi

Just been, not only fire alarms, but slips, trips and falls.

Two of them, 10 minutes total and replaced two alarms.

Brilliant service and so much value for money.

They have also put stickers on cars preventing free access to fire engines because of stupid parking.

This is what we need, serious value for money.

I do not want to get them into trouble.

I was struggling to move some furniture, they did it, a couple of strong lads in a couple of minutes and would not accept a penny for it.

Great Service, we complain about our Public Services, but they do deliver.

I don't think I have ever complained about our fire service. They really do go out of their way to help. We have part time firemen around here and they are the nicest people you could ever meet. I'm also not one for supporting strike action but I will always support any action they feel the need to take.

The fire service is under appreciated for the work they do.

No doubt about it.

They are grossly under-appreciated.

Plus - their union, the FBU, recently won a real victory in respect of pensions recently, which will no doubt be of interest to many people on these forums:

Where would we be without trade unions?

Firefighters do a difficult and dangerous job and have a right to protect their interests.
