Take extra care - strike action announced

The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) has announced three dates and time periods for industrial action regarding the ongoing pension dispute. These are planned to take place on:

  • Friday 2 May 2014 - between midday and 5 pm
  • Saturday 3 May 2014 - between 2 pm and 2 am (ending on Sunday 4 May 2014)
  • Sunday 4 May - between 10 am and 3 pm

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.
