Give our Firefighters the appropriate equipment to do their job safely!

This petition had 229 supporters

Do you realise the risks taken by our wonderful firefighters yesterday at Grenfell Towers, who risked their lives without thought for their own safety? Are you aware that the London Fire Brigade has a mixture of aerial appliances but they only have a range of 32m in height. Surrey firefighters have a 42m aerial ladder platform which was dispatched to help the LFB reach the higher floors. Why, in a city the size of London, with so many high rise buildings, does our LFB not have ladders to reach floors on these tall buildings?  If ladders are not high enough then the safety of firefighters is at risk from falling, burning, debri and their ability to reach people trapped is impeded.  These men and women risk their lives to save members of the public, in dreadful circumstances, and should be provided with the appropriate equipment to do their job.  Our firefighters are heroes!  Please sign the petition to raise awareness and get them the necessary resources to do their job safely and efficiently.
