Coronavirus: Lincolnshire fire service 'scales back' contact with the public
Fire chiefs in Lincolnshire have “stepped up” planning for Covid-19 as union bosses call for interactions between firefighters and the public to be “temporarily scaled back”.
The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) yesterday said that the service’s “non-emergency” work such as fire safety visits and inspections, school visits, and public meetings, should be temporarily suspended to “reduce the exposure of firefighters to COVID-19 and to protect at-risk individuals from potential contamination from firefighters”.
In response, Lincolnshire’s Chief Fire Officer Les Britzman said the force’s actions “mean we can respond and provide the best possible service”.
