During the period Mon 25 to Fri 29 October 2010 the fire service received several wrong number calls via the emergency reporting line 6333. Although we accept dialling a wrong number is an error we all can make at sometime or other we would ask that should you inadvertently call this number to please reply on answering informing us you have reached the wrong number rather than no reply and disconnecting. This will then leave us in no doubt that it was a wrong number received and not an emergency call attempting to get through.
Restricted Area (Vehicle Movements)
All are respectfully reminded that the area directly to the front of the fire station vehicle bays is restricted for use by fire service vehicles only and not to be used as a vehicle thoroughfare. This restriction is in place as a precautionary measure against potential collisions, particularly at times when the appliances are exiting the bays in response to an emergency call-out. We would therefore ask that all vehicle users keep to the road as provided.
All pedestrians using this route should do so with caution and be aware of fire service vehicle movements.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Senior Fire Officer
