Fire Fighters Strikes confirmed for Friday 1st November and Monday 4th November

The London Fire Brigade has confirmed that another two strikes have been called.

A four and a half hour strike will take place on:


Friday 1st November 2013, TIME: 18:30 – 23:00

A further two hour strike will take place on:


Monday 4th November 2013, TIME: 06:00 – 08:00

With it being the nearest weekend to bonfire night there is a concern about the safety of any firework displays that may be planned.

Also it is highly recommended that you ensure that the area around final exit doors is kept clear and that fire doors are checked for proper functioning.

The Fire Authority has a legal duty to provide London with an emergency fire and rescue service and it has taken action to ensure the continuing provision of a reduced service in the event of a strike (or any other event which deprives the Brigade of its usual workforce).

The provision, known as ‘CapitalGuard’, is a contracted service providing up to 27 fire engines. It is intended to provide a reduced level of operational capability sufficient to fulfill the Authority’s basic statutory duties. This means that the 27 fire engines will attend a limited range of incidents and that, in the first instance, the normal initial attendance to incidents will be just one fire engine.
