Making Kent safer - Kent Fire and Rescue Service wants your views
Kent and Medway Fire and Rescue Authority Chairman, Bryan Cope said: "Kent Fire and Rescue Service works around the clock, 365 days a year dealing with fires, road traffic collisions and other emergencies, such as floods, explosions and chemical incidents.

We want to ensure everyone has the chance to be involved in shaping fire and rescue provision for the coming years, so I would urge you to get involved."

Residents are being encouraged to share their thoughts through a questionnaire, available in local libraries, online or by calling 01622 692121. As an added incentive, one lucky resident could win £100 in shopping vouchers.
