North Wales firefighters redundant as part of £2.4 million saving plan LL
From the Journal:
“A NUMBER of firefighters be made redundant as the North Wales Fire and Rescue Service looks to make £2.4 million in savings.
The job losses, which will be spread out across North Wales, are set to save the fire service around £500,000 a year, with a decision on where the 22 posts will be axed yet to be made.
The North Wales Fire Authority last year opted to not replace one of its four ALP vehicles at Llandudno when it reaches the end of its service in March, with the three remaining vehicles set to be stationed in Rhyl, Bangor and Wrexham.
Mrs Frobisher said: “We knew we would be losing one at the end of March. We’ve increased the cover time from 20 to 30 minutes, again it was an issue that we’ve thought long and hard about. We need the public to be aware that this is the best way for us to cover all of North Wales.”
A decision on the location of the ALP vehicles, which were called out 55 times in the last 12 months in Rhyl, will be made next month.”
