We have said if we had even a small fire we would prefer
And when it comes to telling the truth about response times and incidents we prefer
Which is why we support the Fire Brigades Union in the sterling work they do in regard to the Anti Cuts Agenda all over the country, even though we concentrate our efforts in the West Yorkshire Region.
Remember, the Chief Fire Officer Simon Pilling was proven by
his own data we FOI'd to have never attended an incident in 2011 /12!
We wrote about it way back in December 2012 here
We cant help but wonder if any members of the FBU who are operational can say that they never attended an incident in an entire year (whilst getting a tax free fancy car ! )
Occasionally we have felt like packing in and giving up, but we haven't; opposing cuts in provision is on occasions like being a goldfish that is repeatedly thrown into a tank of piranhas.
And WHY ?
Simple - because the FBU is
Choose Life - choose an experienced fire fighters word and their operational experience over a spreadsheet jockeys word EVERY TIME
