Fireman Sam’s New Car

A simple question, in times of severe  pressure on Fire Service budgets do you try to maintain the number of operational fire appliances or do you buy £36,000 Audi A6 executive cars for the South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue senior command team?

A no brainer you would think, not if you are Cllr Alan Atkin and Cllr Alan Buckley both members of the SYFRS Authority.

Both of our RMBC Councillors will give the go ahead to purchase the executive cars ensuring the egos of the Chief Fire Officer, his Deputy and other senior officers are maintained while at the same time approving the closure of fire stations and making front line fire fighters redundant.

Let’s hope the cars come with a full BA team and fitted with a Simon Snorkel!

  1. I’d be very interested to know how much Atkin and Buckley get for being members of South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service Authority?

    Seems very much as if they have lost touch with reality, if they can have approved this greedy nonsense!

    It is high time, they explained themselves!

  2. [begin sarcastic tone] Lets start a campaign to get all the execs on push bikes so the good ones leave the service and get similar positions in the private sector. [end sarcastic tone]

    Joking aside, I wish they had invested a little more and gone for a full electric option, the saving on fuel costs would surely make the expense viable.

    Re: your comment thus: “A no brainer you would think, not if you are Cllr Alan Atkin and Cllr Alan Buckley both members of the SYFRS Authority”.
