BATHURST’S firefighters have come out in support of the city’s nurses who are fighting to keep Bathurst hospital from losing five beds.
The bed closures are set down for Monday, June 3.
Almost a dozen local firies have already signed a petition opposing the bed closure and are encouraging the people of Bathurst to do likewise.
They are also urging everyone to join in a community rally in Victoria Park on Wednesday.
The rally has been organised by the Bathurst branch of the NSW Nurses and Midwives Association and will get underway at 12.30pm.
Emergency services personnel, regional councillors, MPs, business owners, and community members have been invited to come along to the rally and fight for their hospital.
