Proposed reduction to the operational resources available to Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue

I am concerned about the proposals from the Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue service for a significant reduction in fire engine cover for South Worcestershire and specifically the proposal either to remove one fire engine from Evesham or to close Broadway fire station.


These are extremely serious issues and I will be engaging closely with the Fire and Rescue Service during the consultation period which will run until at least the end of this year.

I recognise the need for the service to make economies but I will be seeking absolute guarantees for my constituents that their safety will not be compromised as a result.
