Fire service consultation

COMMUNITIES are being offered the chance to have their say on the future of the Suffolk Fire Service.

Consulation from now until May 5, is taken place as part of the fire service’s 2011-2014 Integrated Risk Management Plan (IRMP).

Chief fire officer Andy Fry said he believed the proposals ‘strike a sensible balance between our vital role in protecting the public and meeting the financial challenge we face’.

He added that it is ‘essential’ the public understand the proposals. The IRMP can be viewed at www.suffolk.gov.uk/IRMP or at Suffolk libraries.
