Having had the need for the fire brigade on three occasions to unexplained fires waiting another five minutes I am positive would have seen our home go up in flames.
Fire is devastating and every second counts, not waiting five minutes.
It seems complete madness to me.

This is so stupid! 5 minutes is a very long time! When you need the fire brigade they can not come quick enough and to have to wait another 5 minutes is unbearable and will mean the difference between life and death! If someone is waiting and waiting for the fire service it could encourage them to endanger their own life getting desperate. This makes no sense, you can't put a price on a life. They do an amazing service and this should not be jeopardised!

It is a disgrace we don't expect our managers to work 96 hours.
But this shift system is all that is pushed to save money
The CFO and public should stand up for the only service that still has the interest of public safety first and foremost .it is not a race to the bottom .

These new proposals are absolutely ridiculous! Proposing that Lincoln's Fire Stations will not be staffed at night and adding 5 minutes response time to emergencies!! It will literally mean the difference between LIFE & DEATH!!! Please support this petition and support the fantastic job our firefighters do.

These cuts will only stop when lives are lost. We must protect our frontline services which was a promise by our government.

Every second counts, every resource matters! Don't allow the Council to jeopardise public safety with these cuts!

The run down of services has to stop. South Park crews cannot get decent housing close to the Fire Station so will spend 4 or 5 days away from home. It's VICTORIAN working conditions in the modern world! !!!
