MEMBERS of the public are being urged to take extra care during industrial action by firefighters tomorrow from 10am to 7pm.

Dorset Fire and Rescue Service will be providing a reduced emergency response during the FBU strike.

Darran Gunter, Chief Fire Officer, said: “Our priority will be to respond to those calls where lives may be at risk or someone needs to be rescued. If we respond to non-emergency calls then those most in need, could be at risk, so please only ring 999 if a fire engine is really needed.”
