Catch a Fire ? #2
I`ve always quite fancied doing one of those articles where you present two different views of an issue and let the reader decide which they prefer.
As it happens, the chance has just come up.
As I`ve already mentioned , proposed cuts to the Fire and Rescue Service in Derbyshire are proving to be an emotive issue locally*.
For more information on the proposals, including a consultation document outlining the proposed changes, and a reference document providing more information and background reasoning, click here ;
This also gives you the chance to respond to the consultation and there is information on the six consultation events taking place throughout the region during November.
For details of the FBU campaign against the cuts, and the reasoning behind their opposition, click here ;
As you`ll notice, the FBU also provide a link to the DFand RS Consultation and encourage people to respond.
That`s enough from me on this subject, now it`s over to you.
For a bit of background ;
