Time is running out for the public to have their say on plans that could see fire engines replaced with smaller vehicles at four stations in Cumbria.
Put forward by Carlisle County Council, the proposal says changes would enable Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service to make better use of resources.
The fire and rescue service says the plans they are submitting will make changes to the way the service operates over the next four years.
A number of ideas are listed in the proposal including :
- Reducing the number of fire stations in areas of relatively low risk.
- Increasing their apprenticeship programmes.
- Reviewing building fire safety safety regulations following the Grenfell Tower investigation.
- Working more closely with other emergency services including the health and voluntary sectors.
The full list of proposals can be found on the Council's website.
A public consultation ends on Friday. Feedback can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
