Fire bosses have released a safety ahead of a second nationwide strike by members of the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) on Saturday.

The FBU will carry out the strike between 6.30pm and 11.30pm in a row over pensions.

Members are protesting against government plans that will mean firefighters will have to work up until up the age of 60 to receive their full pension.

Simon Pilling, chief fire officer for West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, said: “We remain confident in our contingency plans after they were tested, and proved to be successful, during the last period of strike action in September.

“A reduced emergency response will again be inevitable during this next strike action, however, we do our very best to provide effective services throughout.”
