Firefighter's Pledge

FIREFIGHTERS IN Wigtownshire "will not let the public down" during the anticipated national Fire Brigades' strike.

For retained firefighters in Stranraer, Newton Stewart and Whithorn have pledged to respond to every emergency call as usual.

And if, as expected, the full-time firemen hold their first forty-eight hour strike next Tuesday action which could cause major disruption in Dumfries then the effects on Wigtownshire should be 'minimal', according to one senior officer.

Depute Firemaster Angelo Errigo told the 'Free Press' this week

"The effect of the strikes in Wigtownshire will be minimal. All the retained stations will continue to get the support of the service through the use of stores and equipment.

"These teams are highly- professional, well-trained and provide an excellent service all year round without the help of the Dumfries staff. We see no reason why they can not continue to do so".

Spokesmen for the retained teams in Wigtownshire have pledged to respond in the usual manner to every call.
