Gosforth Community Fire Station Stays

Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Authority have bowed to pressure to keep Gosforth Community Fire Station open. Steve Kyte said "this is great news, the 'Preventing, Protecting and Responding' report that recommended the closure of Gosforth Fire Station also said that response time would lengthen. This will not now happen". As well as providing emergency response the Fire Fighters at the station provide a focal point for important preventative and awareness work carried out throughout the Gosforth area, especially with schools and youth groups.
