#FBEU message: Fire Commissioner commences station closures in Sydney

Dear FBEU member,

Tonight, for the first time in NSW, the NSW Fire Commissioner initiated station closures to save money in response to the O’Farrell / NSW Govt budget cuts.

An FBEU Code Red has been issued to all stations. A copy is available here.

Updates and information is also available on the FBEU members forum here.

For more information, please feel free to contact your State Committee rep, or the Union office directly.

Stay united,

Darin Sullivan
