  • Save our Fire Stations Campaign - Success
  • John Hemming MP at WMFS HQ

    I am delighted to report to you that both our local fire stations are now safe from the threat of closure.

    Before Christmas the West Midlands Fire Committee launched a consultation programme on the possible closure of Hay Mills and Sheldon Fire Stations, both in the Yardley Constituency.

    We immediately opposed this and launched a petition objecting.

    Can I thank all of you who supported that petition along with almost 3,000 of your friends and neighbours. I was proud to present your petition at the fire service headquarters(see above).

    I am informed the fire committee will formally agree to keep them open at its next committee meeting on February 9th.

    I am impressed by the way the Fire Authority has taken seriously our views and acted on them. This is clearly a victory for common sense. More good news is the deployment of a ‘fast response’ vehicle at Hay Mills station. This is very welcome news.

    Yours sincerely,

    John Hemming MP, (Birmingham Yardley)

    PS. Thankyou again for your support. By working together we can make a difference in our community.
