Fire Services Petition
WE BELIEVE THAT THE FULL SUFFOLK COUNTY COUNCIL SHOULD VOTE ON CUTS TO OUR FIRE SERVICE, NOT JUST THE 9 MEMBERS OF THE CABINET
A vote for cuts of this severity MUST be made by FULL Council, so all residents of Suffolk are represented. The 9 Members of Cabinet only represent 17% of the voting population. This means 83% of peoples’ views will not be represented.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service are looking to make the following cuts:
• 50% reduction of Fire Engines in Ipswich (from 6 to 3) • Closing Wrentham Fire Station
• Removing a Fire Engine from Lowestoft
• Removing a Fire Engine from Bury St. Edmunds
• Downgrading 1 of Sudbury’s Fire Engines to a smaller vehicle (details unknown!)
We The Undersigned wish for the Suffolk Fire And Rescue Service I.R.M.P. to be voted on by the full council.
