The strike action will take place Thursday 12th June 9.00am until Friday 13th June 9.00am. This period of strike action will see HWFRS operating a reduced service.
Adrian Elliott, Group Commander of HWFRS said
“We are encouraging motorists and residents to take extra care during the strikes when there will be reduced fire cover. Not all of our firefighters are members of the Fire Brigades Union which means some stations will be working normally but people should be aware that it may take us a little longer to respond to calls in some instances”.
“During the firefighter strikes, we want people to be clear about what to do in the event of a fire. The most important point they need to know is that they will still get an emergency response and they should not be tempted to tackle fires themselves.”
“General fire safety messages that we promote throughout the year become even more crucial at times of strike action. An early alert to a fire in your home is just as important for avoiding injury and damage to property, and we would also like to remind people to install a smoke alarm on every floor of their home and to test each alarm is working on a weekly basis.”
He also encouraged people to plan an escape route and to make sure everyone in the house is aware of it.
Other fire safety messages to consider are:
Close inside doors at night to help prevent a fire from spreading.
Stub cigarettes out properly and dispose of them carefully. Put them out. Right out.
Take extra care in the kitchen and never leave cooking unattended.
Do not overload electrical sockets and watch out for faulty and over-heating electrical equipment and wiring or cables.
Don’t tackle a fire yourself. Keep calm and act quickly, get everyone out as soon as possible

Have a fantastic time at the Thurlby Motors Charity Ball helping raise funds for LIVES First Responders.
• Reception drinks
• Superb three course meal & coffee
• Top entertainment
• Live band
• Dusk till dawn dancing
• Auction & raffle
Tickets are only £35 per person.
LIVES Medics & First Responders work in tandem with the emergency services, so if you make a 999 call, not only will an ambulance be mobilised, at the same time a LIVES Medic or Responder will also be notified that you need urgent medical attention. A totally voluntary service, LIVES depends on the support of the people of Lincolnshire to fund their organisation. You can help by attending the Thurlby Motors Charity Ball. We hope to see you at this very special event.
There are a number of ways that you or your company can become involved with the Thurlby Motors Charity Ball such as sponsoring a table at a cost of £50. All sponsors will have branding opportunities on their website and social media activity.
