The West Midlands Fire service has confirmed it is cutting more than 30 firefighter roles, but no one will be made redundant.
The service has confirmed the numbers issued by the Fire Brigades Union, that 18 post would go in Coventry and 16 in Birmingham.
The positions will go through natural wastage, which means jobs won't be filled when people leave.
