HANDS OFF OUR NORFOLK FIRE AND RESCUE SERVICE
Please sign this petition Norfolk FBU (Eastern Region – Fire Brigades Union) against a Police and Crime Commissioner takeover of Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service, and share as widely as you can.
Currently, the service is overseen and held to account by a cross-party committee of Norfolk County Councillors.
Staff oppose this move, County councillors oppose this move (councillors from all parties have twice voted to reject a takeover), and even the Police and Crime Commissioner’s own report did not justify this course of action – saying there should be consensus from all the stakeholders, which there clearly isn’t.
Have a read of the petition text for a full breakdown of why this takeover shouldn’t be allowed to go ahead. I’ll continue to keep an eye on this issue, and work with the FBU, councillors and the public to make sure this vital service is protected.
