Firefighters remind residents to take care during industrial action
11:03am Friday 1st November 2013 in NW
FIREFIGHTERS in Leigh will join a national strike today, Friday.
Between 6.30pm and 11pm Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service will be responding differently to emergencies and are reminding residents to take care during the industrial action.
Fire cover will be greatly reduced with limited fire engines available and the firefighters riding them will not be trained to the same level as the current crew.
The dispute that has led to this is between the unions and the Government and not Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service.
