Stop the Fire Station closures
Around 80 people attended a public meeting on Thursday 14/03/13 to discuss ways to work with the FBU to stop the propose closure of 12 fire stations across London including New Cross and Downham stations.
A public consultation on the proposals runs to the end of May 2013. Everyone should respond to the consultation via www.saveourstations.org.uk and make sure they state that no fire stations should be closed, no appliances should be decommisioned and definately no job should be cut.
He Slashes, You Burn
Boris Johnson declined our invitation to address the meeting as he was too busy cutting public services. The meeting agreed to ensure people are leafleted and encouraged to attend the consultation meetings being arranged by the London Fire Authority to discuss plans with the public.
