West Yorkshire Fire Service
West Yorkshire Fire Service is suspending recruitment of full-time firefighters and cutting 150 support posts in 2011/12.
The Chair of West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Authority has warned that the impact of cuts could be worse from 2013, while the Chief Fire Officer said that non-recruitment would cost 200 firefighter posts if implemented from 2011-15.
West Yorkshire Fire Service covers Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, Leeds and Wakefield.
