Strike ends and normal cover resumes

A two hour strike by members of the Fire Brigades Union has ended and normal cover has resumed.

The walkout took place between 6-8am and is the latest action in the dispute with Government over pensions.

Contingency crews were on duty and attended one call - an automatic fire alarm in Wadhurst, which turned out to be a false alarm.

Further strikes take place this week:
•    July 14th 2014 1700hrs and 1900hrs
•    July 15th 2014 between 0600hrs and 0800hrs & 1700hrs and 1900hrs
•    July 16th 2014 between 0600hrs and 0800hrs & 1700hrs and 1900hrs
•    July 17th 2014 between 0600hrs and 0800hrs & 1700hrs and 1900hrs
•    July 18th 2014 between 0600hrs and 0800hrs & 2300hrs and 0100hrs (19 July)
•    July 19th 2014 between 1100hrs and 1300hrs & 2300hrs and 0100hrs (20 July)
•    July 20th 2014 between 1700hrs and 1900hrs
•    July 21th 2014 between 0600hrs and 0800hrs & 1700hrs and 1900hrs
