RESIDENTS have the chance to give their opinions on new fire service proposals.

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue is consulting on ideas which will form part of its annual service plan.

Fire chiefs spent the last year looking at how best to deliver frontline services and have come up with three changes.

The first is to increase the number of fire stations manned 24-hours-a-day from two to nine.

Only two stations in Lincoln are currently staffed around the clock.

The second change is to increase the training time for retained firefighters by an hour a week.

The third idea is to reduce the number of hydraulic platforms it runs from three to two.

The consultation questionnaire is available at www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/lfr/irmp, along with further information on the proposals. Residents have until January 31 to submit their responses.
