West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service consultation ends

A public consultation into a cost saving plan by West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service comes to an end today. Proposals include reductions in support staff and managers and changes to some response arrangements.

The proposals could reduce the service's budget by £2.5 million. It's part of West Sussex County Council's bid to cut its costs by seventy-nine million pounds.
