Fire closures would ‘compromise safety’

Have your say

Scrapping Belper and Duffield fire stations in favour of a new headquarters in Milford would be a “waste of resources” and “compromise safety”, according to Belper MP Pauline Latham.

Under the proposed merger, which is being considered by Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service, firefighters would serve the two locations from a base on the A6.

However, in a statement Mrs Latham said there is not a suitable site for such a project available in this area and has has demanded Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service reveal whether they have chosen a site.
