    In Kent Fire and Rescue Service Headquarters Email Update

    Emergency cover

    Emergency vehicles crewed by Kent Fire and Rescue Service (KFRS) managers and firefighters who are not union members or who have chosen not to strike will be located at strategic locations around the county to provide the best cover possible.

    999 calls

    During the national firefighters strike KFRS will continue to answer and deal with 999 calls. However the public can expect our Control staff to ask them more questions about the nature of the incident they are reporting. We will need to gather as much information as possible in order to best utilise the resources.

    Article: Oct 29, 2014

    It doesn't make sense.

    Millions of pounds are spent every year to prevent people developing problems like heart disease or cancer, but hardly anything is spent on preventing mental health problems.

    This year, most local authorities are only spending (on average) 1.36 per cent of their prevention budgets on mental health.

    Article: Oct 29, 2014

    A Kent based charity has received an email from a debt collector acting on behalf of another business. The company claims to be making a final request for payment before they begin legal proceedings. The email includes a link to make payment arrangements.

    The charity does not know either company.

    Kent Trading Standards believe this email is a scam. Scammers want bank or credit card details for fraudulent purposes.
