Firefighters Memorial Day - We Can Save Lives

Scotland’s hero fire-fighters are being forced to shower at home after emergencies in spite of contamination risks posed to health - because some stations are without running water, soap or other basic essentials.

The shocking state of facilities were revealed by Scottish Greens MSP, Maggie Chapman following a tour of stations where she met colleagues of fallen fire-fighter Barry Martin who was fatally injured attending a blaze in Edinburgh in January.

The FBU’s DECON campaign is a call to action, for all of us: for government to plan and implement appropriate investment, for the fire and rescue service to ensure policies and procedures are appropriate and adequate, and that training meets the needs of the evolving service, and for firefighters to be aware of what they need to do to keep themselves, their colleagues and their families safe.
