Firefighters lobby MPs to protect county

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue has launched a consultation into its Community Plan as several firefighters joined colleagues in the East Midlands to lobby against cuts.

They met with MPs at Westminster on Tuesday in a meeting arranged by the Fire Brigade Union.

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue’s ‘Community Plan’ aims to look at the main risks to lives, properties, infrastructure and the environment in Lincolnshire.

Chief fire officer, Les Britzman, said: “Our community plan is our commitment to our communities that as a top performing fire service, we will continue to focus on delivering a professional and innovative service, which is driven by our knowledge of the particular risks the county faces.”
