Press Release - Public consultation opens on changes to the Service
Posted on 03/07/2019

Public consultation opens today (Wednesday 3 July) on proposals to make significant changes to the way the Service operates.

The consultation period runs for 12 weeks until 22 September 2019 and there are a number of ways for everyone to engage with the consultation.

The online consultation survey is now live on the Service’s website here and residents are invited to come along to local public 'drop-in' exhibitions across Devon and Somerset.

The exhibitions have been arranged across the Service area, particularly near areas most affected by the proposals, for people to ask questions about this consultation and the future of the Service.

Assistant Chief Fire Officer Pete Bond said: “We really want to hear what you have to say about the proposed service options, so please use this opportunity to engage with us and have your voice heard.”

Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service is considering closing or removing a number of low risk/low activity fire stations and fire engines, and reinvesting the savings into prevention work in the community.
