Information sessions for Warwickshire residents as fire service consults on changes

RESIDENTS are being invited to information sessions as part of a consultation on changes to Warwickshire Fire and Rescue’s services.

Warwickshire County Council is running a public consultation to give residents, businesses, community groups and public sector partners a say on the way in which WFRS manages its resources.

And there are five information sessions being held across the county in January and February. They start in Stratford on January 17 and include Kenilworth on January 24, Bedworth on January 29, and Atherstone on February 8, before finishing in Southam on February 27.

There will be representatives from WCC and WFRS at each event and attendees have an opportunity to either submit questions in advance, or on the evening itself.

Each event starts at 6.30pm and will finish at 8pm. Places are limited so anyone wanting to attend must book a ticket. These are allocated on a first come, first served basis, though if an event is fully booked, there is an opportunity to join a waiting list.

The public consultation is open until March 10, giving everyone a chance to view the details of the proposal and give their feedback.

WCC’s fire spokesperson Coun Andy Crump said: “The public consultation gives everyone a chance to have their say on our proposals, but we’re also keen to give people a chance to hear from us in person and to ask any questions they may have. No decisions will be made until the consultation is over, so we hope our residents will take this opportunity and join us at one of our information sessions to find out more.”
