Chris Bailey, an area manager with Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service, told Heart:

"I think they're all challenging because we have a number of fronts: roads, communities, workplaces, emergency response. Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service has set all the targets to make sure that every member of staff is challenged to give the best possible value for money for the community."
