Upgrade Fire and Rescue Service in Bedworth without relocating resources from Nuneaton

We the undersigned petition the council to We understand that Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service faces difficulties with availability of retained crew in the daytime at Bedworth Fire Station. However we do not accept that relocating one of the two crews in Nuneaton to Bedworth in the daytime is a reasonable or safe solution. We ask Warwickshire County Council to provide additional resources to properly staff Bedworth Fire Station each day without loss to the staffing levels in Nuneaton. This is needed and affordable given the expansion of population, traffic and warehousing in Coventry and Warwickshire.

1) In the last fire cuts the reduced the size of each crew from 5 to 4, making the early attendance of the 2nd appliance more important.
2) Nuneaton and Bedworth is the busiest district for callouts and also covers large sections of M6 and A5
3) New housing and employment allocations provide more pressures but also more income.
