A new campaign has been launched to stop the cuts to West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service.
From April this year, Crawley will lose a fire appliance and all 13 retained fire fighters will be made redundant.
A new online petition has been launched by for Crawley Councillor, Chris Oxlade.
“Crawley is rapidly growing with thousands of homes being built. There has been a marked increase in incidents in our town and we need a fire service that can cope with the demand.
“I am encouraging as many people as possible to sign the petition to save Crawley fire service at www.chrisoxlade.org.uk/save_crawley_fire_service “
An amendment to next years budget was put forward on Friday (13th Feb) at the WSCC Full council meeting to reverse the cuts, proposed by County Councillor Michael Jones and seconded by Councillor Chris Oxlade.
Cllr Michael Jones said:
“This is probably the council’s final chance to step back from what I am convinced is going to be an awful self-inflicted wound. We will soon hit the realities of what the new crewing system is going to become.
If there are shortages, many fire engines and appliances will be off the run, or the team that attends having to travel ever further distances to attend incidents.
This isn’t a West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service that is lean and efficient, it is one that is spread thinly, alarmingly so, across the county.
Is that really worth the paltry amount of money this council will save?
When it means taking engines from Crawley, Horsham, Midhurst, Petworth and Storrington, and with knock on effects for the rest of the county, it seems to me that the majority Group should just accept it made the wrong decision and listen to residents and firefighters on this issue.”
