Remember the consultation document?
They said they had "significantly reduced the number of people killed or injured in fires in the home".
They said, "In the last five years we have reduced the levels of risk considerably across the county."
They said, "We are not proposing to lower our response standards". Perhaps not the generous 'standards' they set themselves, but what about the actual standard of response?
Not only gone up, but from the best to the worst is an achievement. Sadly not one to be proud of.
All the figures above are ones published by the Government.
Do they actually know what "significantly" and "considerably" mean?
There has been one significant reduction, in just 5 years.
