During a visit to meet the firefighters at Prudhoe station it was good to hear about issues impacting upon the great work they do.
They were concerned about the recruitment & retention of retained & full time firefighters.
We held a successful recruitment event at the Prudhoe Station. Check out the Hexham Courant report – Click here (including visit by NCC Cabinet member Cllr John Riddle)
They said other services had popular social media platforms.
We agreed this would have many benefits and put the suggestion foward, as a result the service has now just introduced a facebook page which immeditally became very popular, – Click here
Our support for the young people ‘The future of Prudhoe’ is so important to us all and we are pleased to help promote the ‘Young firefighters scheme’ – Click here
Others issues include accessabilty to areas due to parked vehicles –
We work closely with the fire & rescue service as well as the Police to raise the issue with the public on a periodical basis.
