Merseyside plan for more firefighters approved

Merseyside's fire authority has approved plans to add 22 firefighters to their ranks along with four extra appliances after the public backed the proposals.

Firefighter numbers have been cut by 32% since 2010 from 923 to 620 and the number of fire engines has fallen from 42 to 26.

According to a report last year, the cuts had "compromised" the way Merseyside fire and Rescue Service responds to emergencies.

But an inspection by the industry regulator last month commended the service, saying it had was "outstanding" at preventing fires and "good" at responding to them.

The changes will be funded with about £1m from "current reserves combined with robust debt repayment plans," the fire service said.

It confirmed that overnight cover at Liverpool city centre and Wallasey stations will be maintained.

There had been plans to shut these stations overnight last year that had to be shelved after protest from the Fire Brigades Union and public.

We cautiously welcome the move and are still discussing how best to implement it without detrimental impact to firefighters conditions of service.

It's a direct result of an FBU-led campaign in conjunction with local Labour groups which got massive support"
