The Devon and Somerset Fire & Rescue Service is currently consulting on a range of proposals that could see eight rural fire stations close, with the mothballing a number of engines and converting fully-manned stations into part-time operations also outlined.
THE BELOW STATIONS WILL REMAIN OPEN AND WILL NOT LOSE ANY FIRE ENGINES
Axminster, Bampton, Bere Alston, Bideford, Bovey Tracey, Buckfastleigh, Burnham-on-Sea, Camels Head, Castle Cary, Chagford, Cheddar, Chulmleigh, Combe Martin, Crewekerne, Crownhill, Cullompton, Dartmouth, Dawlish, Dulverton, Danes Castle, Middlemoor, Glastonbury, Greenbank, Hartland, Hatherleigh, Holsworthy, Ilminster, Ivybridge, Kingsbridge, Lundy Island, Minehead, Modbury, Moretonhampstead, Nether Stowey, Newton Abbot, North Tawton, Ottery St Mary, Plympton, Plymstock, Princetown, Salcombe, Seaton, Shepton Mallet, Somerton, South Molton, Street, Tiverton, Torrington, Clyst St George, Wincanton, Wiveliscombe, and Yelverton fire stations are not affected and will retain the same level of cover.
The only reason any of the services are being cut at a local level is because central goverment is keeping more of the cake for their fat arse,s to scoff on.
'The below stations will reamain open' for now.
Look what happened when they wanted to sell off teignmouth police station. They appeased a few people by opening a small cop shop on the high street and then closed it a couple of years later. Just as they did in Dawlish.
