When?

  • Friday 1st November 2013 from 6:30 pm to 11:00 pm
  • Monday 4th November 2013 from 6:00 am to 8:00 am

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service has plans and procedures in place to continue to protect the communities of Cheshire during strike periods. However, there will be less fire engines available, so we would once again encourage everyone to take extra care during the strike.

It is especially important to be extra vigilant on Friday night as this falls within the Bonfire period, which is traditionally a very busy time for fire crews.

We would urge people to only attend organised bonfire and firework displays.

We would also urge groups to consider holding bonfire and firework displays on Saturday or Sunday evening when a greater number of fire engines will be available should there be an issue.
