UK Firefighters attacks increase
A depressing News release from the Fire Brigades Union in the UK....
Fire Brigades Union Link
There are now 40 attacks reported among the UK's 60,000 Firefighters every week, with many going unreported...it's feared that there may be 2000 attacks per year now.
Aren't we lucky!!!:(
Different kind of Fire Attack
I can't even imagine the additional stress placed on fire crews.. Glad I left when I did. Do you get much cooperation from the coppers?
I heard at one point that they were considering placing video surveillance on the appliances.. did that ever happen?
All I can add is helmet on, head down and stay safe. The worst public reaction we face here is verbal criticism regarding temporary tax hikes when we have to buy a new engine.
Thoughts are with you and your crews.. miss my time in the UK, but glad we never had to deal with anything like this. :mad:
