Fire chiefs in strike alert
9:16am Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
FIRE chiefs in North and East Yorkshire are urging the public and businesses to take extra care this weekend when firefighters stage their second strike in a dispute over pensions.
North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service said the strike would take place on Saturday, between 6.30pm and 11.30pm.
It said that while there would be fire cover in place everywhere, there would still be fewer fire engines available overall, so it was important for the public to take extra care to keep themselves safe.
Humberside Fire and Rescue Service urged businesses to take steps to reduce the risk of fire prior to the strike.
