🚒 Save Our Firefighters Campaign 🚒
We are very proud to announce that we running a joint campaign with Laura Smith MP and The Fire Brigade Union to save the 2nd 24/7 staffed fire engine at Crewe Fire Station from a downgrade to an on-call service. The proposal has come from Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service who are currently reviewing it. We want to create public pressure through our activism, our media and a grand petition to ensure this decision does not go ahead. It would compromise the safety of residents and businesses not just in Crewe but neighbouring towns and cost the town key public sector jobs.
Andrew Wilson, Chair of Crewe and Nantwich Labour Party, said, “The potential loss of jobs is very worrying. How many parents have kids who aspire to be firefighters? How can those kids aspire to play such a proud role in their communities if those jobs are not there”.
We will be in the town centres of Crewe and Nantwich every Saturday from 10-12 until the end of the year and we will be knocking on doors all around the constituency in the week. Please come and find us to sign a petition if you believe this review must be scrapped or you can visit https://www.laurasmithmp.co.uk to fill in an online petition (available soon!).
