Good afternoon

At the recent Exmoor Area Panel meeting, Cllr Andy Milne gave an update on the proposed cuts to the Devon and Somerset Fire & Rescue Service to modernise the service and make cost savings under the banner of ‘Safer Together’.  These options included the loss of stations in Devon and Somerset, including Porlock, and a reduced number of fire engines/services, the latter affecting Williton.   These options were discussed by the Devon and Somerset Fire & Rescue Service on 28 June and the chosen options will go public today on 1 July as part of an 11-week public consultation.

It was agreed at the Panel meeting that the weblinks to the Safer Together programme and public consultation would be circulated and Cllr Milne and Cllr Pugsley urged all to participate.  Please find the links below:
