Save Our Fire Service


Hampshire Fire Service are proposing to cut the number of 'full-size' fire engines in Southsea from 3 to just 1!

Replacing fully equipped fire engines with smaller vehicles (including a 'van' with just two firefighters!) will put lives at risk. It will leave the crews in Southsea unable to tackle fires in high-rise buildings (over 6 floors) without waiting for fire engines to come from outside Portsmouth, and we all know the problems we have with traffic getting in and out of the city.

You can find out more at the Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service site by clicking here.

We, the undersigned, oppose these cuts to the Fire Service in Portsmouth and ask our representatives on the Fire Authority to vote against these cuts.
