A drop-in session is set to be held at Lichfield Community Fire Station as part of an on-going consultation on how the Service will operate in the future.

"Information on the proposals relating specifically to Lichfield will be available during the drop-in session and representatives from the Service will be there to answer any questions that residents have." 

Station Manager at Lichfield Tim Hollingworth

Representatives from the Service will attend the events to discuss the options for change in more detail.

The sessions will take place from 8am – 8pm on May 5. Residents are being encouraged to drop-in at any point during those times. Local councillors have also been informed of the events.

People can also get involved by completing the online questionnaire which is available on the Service website - http://www.staffordshirefire.gov.uk/3362.asp - until May 22.

Businesses, voluntary sector and public sector partners are also being consulted on a range of potential options designed to help address future risks, meet demands and achieve financial savings targets.

The Service has already saved £4 million since 2010 and will have to save an additional £5.7 million between 2015 and 2020.


Station Manager at Lichfield Tim Hollingworth said: "All of the feedback that we receive during the 12-week consultation will play a key role in how Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service will look in the future. That is why we are keen to hear as many views as possible from the people we serve.

"Information on the proposals relating specifically to Lichfield will be available during the drop-in session and representatives from the Service will be there to answer any questions that residents have.

"Absolutely no decisions have been made on the proposals so it is essential that as many people as possible take the opportunity to voice their opinions before May 22."
