The Chief Fire Officer of Derbyshire Fire and Rescue has claimed the re-organisation of its services are important to ensure the service is 'Fit to Respond'.
Proposals include a reduction in the amount of fire stations in the county and 78 job losses, but Sean Frayne said the changes would make for a more efficient fire service.
Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service is committed to ensuring it is ‘Fit to Respond’ to the many challenges being faced both now and in the future.
By ensuring the Service has the best available resources, located in the most strategic locations throughout the county, I as Chief Fire Officer for Derbyshire, am satisfied that the Service can continue to provide an excellent effective service to our communities.
