The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) has announced two further strike periods, taking place between 6 pm and 10 pm on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 December 2013.
We would like to reassure the public that emergency calls will be answered and responded to during the planned industrial action by the FBU.
We will remain in operation as usual throughout the period of industrial action and are calling for your assistance in reducing calls during that time.
If you have an emergency dial 999 and we will we send an emergency response, but our level of response will be limited and may take longer than usual. Our response will focus on the highest risks to life.
Watch our video for tips on how you can take extra care during industrial action, or visit our Fire safety advice during industrial action pages.
