More than 80 support staff from West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue face redundancy as the service tries to save money. This brings the total number of jobs lost to more than 100 since 2010 – a third of the support staff workforce.
The move comes as part of a re-structure of the service, which will save £2.5 million per year.
Assistant Chief Fire Officer, Martyn Redfern said there may be more job losses to come with a potential £12 million cut in central funding between now and 2015.
Resources will now be concentrated on core emergency services.
