The Town Council has opposed the proposed cut to fire services in Sudbury made by Conservative controlled Suffolk. The proposed Rapid Response Vehicle that is meant to replace our 2nd engine is an option that does not tell us how many firefighters it will have, what it could be used for and what equipment it will have.
Also, Suffolk have not said which fire engine we will lose. This is important as one is designed with house fires in mind while the other deals with hazardous waste, car accidents as well as fires.
The consultation document claims calls have reduced across Suffolk. This is due to better design in new buildings, more prevention work BUT Sudbury has not seen this reduction in call outs. Sudbury has the same level as 5 years ago.
