Gareth supports our firefighters


On Tuesday night I attended the Fire Brigades Union 'Love your Fire Fighter ' event in Parliament. It was a pleasure to meet the men and women on the front-line keeping us safe.

It was also the opportunity to watch two important short films. Firstly, the ‘Operator’ won the Bafta short film award last year (2016) for its depiction of a control room operator taking an emergency fire call. Then ‘The Firefighters’ Dilemma’ was made this year to convey the stress fire crews are under when they turn out to a fire if they have to wait for a second fire engine before entering the premises due to service cuts.

Our Fire Fighters are doing an incredible job in our local communities. All they ask is that we support them in ensuring our world class service in maintained. I know that I'll be doing all I can to do this inside and outside Parliament.
