Save Bow Fire Station

1,125 Signatures Goal: 1,000

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, is proposing to close Bow Fire Station, and 11 other fire stations in London, as part of budget cuts to the London Fire Brigade, alongside plans to reduce the number of firefighters, and the overall number of fire engines, including from two to one at Whitechapel. These proposals are set out within the draft fifth London Safety Plan which is out for public consultation which closes on the 17th June. Respond to the consultation here: http://www.london-fire.gov.uk/lsp5.asp

Bow Fire Station is located within Tower Hamlets, in an area of increasing population, which had the highest number of call outs out of any London borough last year. It has multiple high rise buildings with high risk factors, and response times for firefighters to reach a fire are critical. Every second counts. The proposals to close Bow Fire Station will inevitably increase the time it takes for firefighters to reach a blaze and tackle a fire, thereby endangering life, and public safety.

This petition was established by Tower Hamlets Labour Party, supported by the Fire Brigades Union, and local firefighters, to petition the Mayor of London to keep Bow Fire Station open, to continue to protect local residents and serve the community.

The petition is being submitted as part of the consultation process, and is therefore now closed. Further updates on the campaign to oppose the closure of Bow Fire Station can be found at www.towerhamletslabour.org.uk or via the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/SaveOurFireStationBow/info and Twitter account @saynotobow

    I can't bear to think what would happen if there was a major incident in the East End. How long would it take crews to arrive from other stations, especially as traffic is horrendous in that area
