Gosport's 24 hour Fire Service Under Threat.

As Conservative cuts start to bite, Gosport's 24 hour Fire Service is under threat. In a consultation document drawn up by the Fire Authority, Gosport will take a huge chunk of the cuts being made across Hampshire.
Under Option One, Gosport
Fire Station will only be manned for 12 hours during the day, for the other 12 hours fire officers will be on call, increasing response times during those hours by 4 minutes.
Under Option Two, Gosport Fire Station will only be manned by 2 firemen during those 12 hours, meaning that for anything other than a minor fire, we would have to wait for on call firemen or an engine to come from somewhere else.

This is NOT good enough and we believe that this will put lives and property at risk, a view shared by the Fire Brigades Union.

We are asking the Fire Authority to think again and to consider a third option put forward by the Fire Brigades Union, a 3rd Option that will have a full crew of 4 men 24 hours a day, a full crew that is able to deal with most emergencies, including being able to enter a building should there be someone trapped inside. An option that will not only save lives and property but also saves money. Please sign our petition and show your support for the 3rd Option.

The People of Gosport say "Think Again!"

At the consultation meeting the people of Gosport overwhelmingly said that the Fire Authority should "THINK AGAIN" and consider a 3rd option being put forward by the Fire Brigades Union. Rob Dellow of the Fire Brigades Union made a heart felt speech detailing the risks of the 2 options put forward and detailed a third option that would save lives, and money.
