Stop the cuts to NT Fire and Rescue

    1. Petition by

      United Voice NT Branch

The cuts to four full time Firefighters in the Darwin rural area and the transfer of their duties to volunteers will dramatically increase response times to the region and will put lives and property at risk.

The decommissioning of the Emergency Tender in the Palmerston station will reduce the amount and type of response available to the people of Palmerston.
This will be compounded by the fact the Palmerston crews will now have to respond to the rural area further reducing a response capability to Palmerston placing further pressures on the NT Fire and Rescue Service and threatening lives and property in the Northern Territory's fastest growing area.

 

To:
NT Chief Minister Terry Mills
Stop the cuts to NT Fire and Rescue

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      The population in the rural area is growing every day, we don't need these essential services taken away! Does a town firery know Stangways road is not as it appears on a gps map? I bet not!! We all need their service and rely on there services.

      The reduction of first responders is a misguided and inherently stupid and dangerous idea probably suggested by someone who hasnt lived in the region for many, many years.

      The rural area is growing in population and faces the greatest risks of fire in the dry season...why you would cut back on resources there is just is plain madness!

      My house has been saved from bushfire three times by firefighters, cannot see why you would cut such a vital and essential service. Appalled by this decision!
