The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) have informed Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue of their intention to carry out 24-hour strike action next week.

Members of the union will be on strike from 9am on Tuesday, December 9 until 9am on Wednesday, December 10.

Dave Ramscar, chief fire officer at Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue, said: “Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue has plans in place to ensure that we continue to provide an emergency response within the county. We accept that any planned industrial action will impact on our ability to deliver business as usual, but we are confident that the implementation of our plans will enable us to continue to answer 999 calls and to respond to incidents as quickly as possible.

“We continue to remind people to take care when going about their daily business, and that there is further safety advice available on our website and on Twitter @lincsfirerescue.”

The Fire Brigades Union have been holding strikes across the country over pensions and plans to raise the retirement age of firefighters to 60.
