Cornwall Fire Cuts
4:49pm 2nd September 2014
The cuts take a bite out of Cornwall's fire service.
Eighteen frontline fire fighters could go under Council plans to save more than half a million pounds in four years.
Another two hundred thousand could be slashed from on-call services, including jobs.
Kevin Herniman speaks for the FBU in the Duchy and told Pirate FM he is worried: "With a place like Cornwall which is quite a large county geographically and to get crews to an incident is quite hard, so any cuts at all with fire appliances or firefighters will have a detrimental effect.
"What they're doing, they're writing the integrated risk management plan around the budget and not the other way round They should be saying we need more firefighters more fire appliances and more fire stations."
