Dorset Fire Fighters Walk Out Tonight


7:55am 1st November 2013
(Updated 11:02am 1st November 2013)

Fire-fighters across Dorset will be going on strike again this evening (Friday 1st November).

It's in another row over changes to their pensions. The industrial action is due to take place from 6:30pm this evening and will finish at 11pm.

Residents are being asked to take extra care during this time to minimise the demand on 999 services.

Whilst non-striking staff - and those who aren't members of the Fire Brigades Union - will be on hand, resources will be depleted.

Checking our smoke alarms work and making sure cigarettes are extinguished properly are just some of the safety tips being given.
