Firefighters In Strike Action Here
As firefighters across Sussex and Surrey prepare to join a national strike today, fire services here insist they will be able to cope with emergencies.
People in Surrey are though being warned some non-emergency calls won't be answered.
It is after the county's fire service decided not to allow firefighters access to their stations and is hiring 'private contractors' to stand in instead.
Meanwhile fire services in Sussex tell us senior officers have been re-trained to help deal with any emergencies.
Retained firefighters will also be proving cover during strike action .
The four-hour walk out starts at midday.
The FBU say changes will see firefighters working longer, paying more into their pension, but getting less back in retirement.
Ministers describe the action as 'unnecessary and avoidable'.
