Fire & Rescue services consultation

Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service (WFRS) which carries out fire and
rescue functions on behalf of the Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Authority, Warwickshire
County Council (WCC), is consulting on a proposed change to its service delivery model as
part of its Resourcing to Risk approach. It is a radical change to current operations. They are
proposing to close Bidford, Fenny Compton, Henley, Shipston, Polesworth, Kenilworth,
Wellesbourne and Gaydon as on-call fire stations into surge stations.  There are concerns
about the change from an on-call station system to a surge team model which has not been
tried before in a comparable rural county.  As well as, the lack of night fire cover in our area. Residents are urged to engage with the consultation, click on the link below. Deadline for your views is 10 March.
