Recently, I was privileged to have the opportunity to meet some of the professional Firefighters that tackled the tragic inferno at Grenfell Tower. Hosted by the Fire Brigades’ Union in Westminster, the event successfully recognised and celebrated the invaluable work they do keeping our community safe.
The maintenance of a world-class, professional fire and rescue service is something all political parties should support, I was happy to give my assurance to continue supporting the fire and rescue services that cover South Basildon and East Thurrock.
Those who responded to the Grenfell Tower fire had their training and professionalism tested to the limit. All members of parliament should support our fire and rescue services, in the interests of both public and firefighter safety.
