“This is good news for Wrexham and the entire region. The second fire engine crews regularly cover for more rural stations as well as Wrexham and I think that’s been recognised.
“It’s important now that the Fire Authority is put on a more sustainable and secure financial footing. It’s no good having this hand-to-mouth existence each year and that’s why I’d favour moving to a separate precept as the police do. By doing that, taxpayers could clearly see what they were paying for rather than the Fire Authority having to go cap in hand to the councils each year.
“The Fire Authority’s members have clearly understood the message that came from last year’s campaign – Wrexham needs its fire crews and engines and the local population are behind our firefighters 100% in ensuring our town and surrounding areas are kept safe.”
