Julia Mulligan responds to Fire Brigades Union announcement

In response to the consultation proposing changes to the governance of North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, the FBU has announced that it will be supporting the governance model.

Julia Mulligan, Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, said: “My focus is and will always be on the frontline and I’m pleased the Fire Brigades Union has recognised this in their decision.

“The bottom line is that my business case identifies £6.6 million of savings that could be reinvested into the frontline through sharing buildings, back office functions and by seizing collaboration opportunities. We are currently in the midst of a consultation and are keen to hear from the workforce and public. I would therefore  encourage people to find out more and let me know their thoughts by going to telljulia.com.”
